Sweden has reportedly been helping out the NSA through its National Defense Radio Establishment.

According to claims of investigative journalist Duncan Campbell, the Swedish National Defense Radio Establishment (FRA) has been giving the NSA access to the Baltic underwater cables.

The information has apparently surfaced in a hearing on the wiretapping scandal of a committee in the European Parliament.

The European Parliament’s Committee on Civil Liberties has been tasked with gathering information about the aforementioned scandal and figuring out how citizens of the European Union have been affected by the surveillance run by the NSA.

During the hearing, Campbell claimed Sweden was the third major partner of the US and UK in the entire mass surveillance effort. Whether this information will prove to be true or not remains to be seen.
