In an interview with Israeli newspaper Maariv in January, Shalev Houliu was asked about reports that the spy program Pegasus was used to monitor Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi before his death at his consulate in Istanbul.

"I can tell you that Khashoggi was not targeted by any NSO product or technology, including eavesdropping, surveillance, site tracking and intelligence gathering," he said.

In Mexico, where investigative journalist Javier Valdes was shot dead in the street in broad daylight in 2017, leading journalists and activists said the government of former President Enrique Benia Nieto had targeted him using the Pegasus spy program.
