OPBP Provides Research Assistance for GCHQ Mass Surveillance Case

by | Feb 6, 2015

The Investigatory Powers Tribunal found today that the sharing of intercepted mass communications between the UK and US governments before 2014 contravened Articles 8 and 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights, because the rules imposing safeguards on these activities were not made known to the public.

OPBP provided comparative legal research for the claimants in the case on the legal framework governing mass communication surveillance in other jurisdictions.
