8:18 pm
granted access to secret government documents politico takes up the story for us. cambridge on a day to is seemingly everywhere apart from helping the campaign to victory by using information harvested from millions of facebook profiles it turns out the company's services have been used by the british government to cambridge on the parent company is called the f c l group the whistleblower who on earth the facebook data breach calls the two entities as c.l. and cambridge on the one in the say s c l used to be on the payroll of the british defense ministry thanks to a freedom of information request from twenty six we know that in two thousand and eleven the energy paid for the provision of external training and in twenty fifteen it paid us for psycho social research to top it all off s.c.l.
8:19 pm
got the green light to hold british government secrets on its premises britain's information commissioner's already investigating cambridge analytic over the facebook data breach but in light of the defense contracts with its parent company as c l the chair of britain's home affairs select committee is now demanding a why did government investigation into the company's activities there are now growing concerns about whether there should be a wider investigation into the to reduce there are concerns about the implications for democracy about information being used in an illegitimate way and no one has the chance to counteract it and the trees its real problems outside of the u.k.'s c l's and cambridge on the list of his client list reads like a who's who of contentious elections and political hot spots cambridge analytical was hired by kenya's ruling party ahead of its elections last year the company is accused of stoking ethnic tensions and manipulating votes his online prejudices to
8:20 pm
help kenya's leaders stay in power the company's also accused of orchestrating political. sting operations on their client's political rivals and circulating the evidence online among s.c.l. is clients was ukraine it was hired by the kiev government to help recapture the self-proclaimed republic of donetsk. it was contracted to deliver a data driven strategy for the ukrainian government in pursuit of the goal to win back control of the netsky findings replied to designed localized communications campaigns to erode and weaken the people's republic this particular campaign didn't bear much fruit for the ukrainian government the website reveals yet another time to the british government the ukraine report it says was delivered to kiev and shared with the u.k.'s ministry of defense i don't really believe the ministry of defense should be involved in
8:21 pm
a company one arm of which at least is engaged in a series of campaigns around the world of propaganda and manipulation apparently and political interference secondly i don't really see why the ministry of defense is in any case spending huge amounts of money. on a propaganda work and finally the question of secrecy i mean apparently this company was given access to top secret information and this seems to me to be an extremely. worrying revelation it's likely that the next chapter in the cambridge analytical scandal won't be its links to facebook but to governments around the world including the u.k.'s. the british defense ministry has reacted to the story saying it has no current relationship with the c.l. group and that the company has no access to classified information.
