Where does surveillance end and interference begin?
Harassment, as referred to here on Transit Report, is conducted by police forces, private security agencies and recruited community members, not the jealousy motivated type. There are many domestic security firms supplying training, equipment and personnel (Intercon, Kroll, Black Cube etc).
"The extent to which security agencies use domestic covert operations to exert social control varies by country and political system. Such operations can include surveillance, infiltration, and disruption of individuals, dissident groups, attempts to publicly discredit dissident figures, and even assassination or extrajudicial detention and execution. Security agencies are constrained in some countries by a mesh of judicial and legislative accountability, whereas in others they may answer only to a single leader or executive committee."
