British spooks went to elaborate lengths to spy on members of the G20 summit when it was held in the UK in 2009.

Apparently GCHQ intercepted foreign politicians’ communications at G20 summits, monitored phones and set up fake internet cafes to gather information from allies.

Among the pile of documents leaked by NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, there was information on the surveillance of G20 delegates’ emails and BlackBerrys.

According to the Guardian, foreign politicians and officials who took part in two G20 summit meetings in London in 2009 had their computers monitored and their phone calls intercepted on the instructions of their British government hosts.
