Former Chilean Minister of Defense may have been spied on by Argentine

According to Uruguayan press, the Chilean government requested a report on the espionage to potentially request for the extradition of the defendant.

MONTEVIDEO. -  Chilean authorities requested information from Uruguayan courts to confirm whether or not former Argentine agent Iván Velásquez –currently incarcerated in Montevideo- hacked into emails belonging to the government, and to possibly request his extradition.

According to the periodical, “El Observador”, former Minister of Defense Jaime Ravinet could be among the Chilean government officials who were targeted for illegal surveillance, as well as the Chilean ambassadors to Colombia: Gustavo Ayares; Cuba: Gabriel Gaspar Tapia; Croatia: Francisco Devia and the OAS representative for Santiago: Carlos Portales.

Velásquez is in custody in Montevideo for having accessed private police information.  Furthermore, an investigation performed by IT professionals discovered that he may have also accessed other email accounts in Chile.
The Argentine national –who has been hospitalized in a medical facility in Montevideo since February 19th for nephritic colic (a urologic condition) - he hacked into official’s emails with the goal of accomplishing other objectives.

The investigators also discovered that, from Argentina, Velásquez spied on emails belonging to Spanish diplomats that had been working in 2007 to mediate the dispute between Argentina and Uruguay for the Botnia paper mill.
