The Ferrari team boss told reporters at the Belgian Grand Prix, won by Raikkonen, that the Finn's evidence to the Paris hearing was produced to counter a claim from McLaren that Ferrari had snooped on them.
"Kimi Raikkonen made a witness statement about radio communications from his former team," said Todt.
"And maybe one word about that," he continued.
"I have read so much about the 'skeleton in the closet' for Ferrari, the big surprise about what might have happened over the last 10 years.
"The skeleton which was submitted was radio communication."
Leading teams encrypt their communications to and from drivers to protect information from rivals but Todt said it was common practice to hack into them.
"I have to admit that we listen to certain car radios," he said.
"Kimi testified that it was a common practice in his former team from 2002 to 2006.
"When our lawyer asked one of their (McLaren's) witnesses if it was true that they listened to the (other team's) radio, the reply was in the affirmative."
Raikkonen joined Ferrari from McLaren at the end of last season as replacement for seven times champion Michael Schumacher.

Having now had time to study the judgement of the World Motor Sport Council with its lawyers and shareholders, McLaren thinks it is in the best interests of the sport , and its goal of winning races and world championships, not to appeal.
