Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos phone is said to have been accessed by the Saudi Government as per the claim made by the security chief of Bezos. He also accused the Saudi government of intending to harm him.

A longtime security consultant Gavin De Becker came on to the conclusion of Bezos' phone being accessed following his investigation into the leaked message between Jeff and Lauren Sanchez that was published in the January edition of National Enquirer. The magazine even claimed that the two were dating.

Well, following the incident, after Bezos claimed to investigate the matter further in detail, the boss of National Enquirer David Pecker expressed his anger. Speculations have been made that David's rage was because the investigation could have uncovered ties between Mr. Pecker and the Saudi Arabian Government.

Recently, a month ago, the authorities of Mr. Bezos also accused Mr. Pecker of blackmailing Bezos with the threat of publishing intimate photos of Bezos, which is alleged to be sent by Bezos to Ms. Sanchez.

Regarding the issue, Mr. Becker mentioned in an article posted in The Daily Beast website that the parent company of the National Enquirer, American Media Inc. had confidentially asked to dismiss all the claims of 'electronic eavesdropping or hacking in their newsgathering process.'

Mr. De Becker wrote.

Our investigators and several experts concluded with high confidence that the Saudis had access to Bezos' phone, and gained private information. 

Further, he also claimed that Saudis were after Bezos because Washington Post that is owned by Jeff covered the suspects of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Arabian consulate last October.
