News Americas, UNITED NATIONS, NY, Tues. Sept. 24, 2013: Calling it “a situation of grave violation of human rights and of civil liberties,” Brazil’s President, Dilma Rousseff, used her address to the U.N. General Assembly this morning to slam the United States.

Rousseff called reports that U.S. was spying on Brazil, “the activities of a global network of electronic espionage” and said the “illegal interception of information and data” in the name of fighting terrorism cannot be sustained.

“We face, Mr. President, a situation of grave violation of human rights and of civil liberties; of invasion and capture of confidential information concerning corporate activities, and especially
of disrespect to national sovereignty,” she told the body. “We expressed to the Government of the United States our disapproval, and demanded explanations, apologies and guarantees that such procedures will never be repeated.”

And the Brazilian President urged the United Nations “to play a leading role in the effort to regulate the conduct of states with regard to these technologies” but said her country “will redouble its efforts to adopt legislation, technologies and mechanisms to protect us from the illegal interception of communications and data.”
