UK Mass Surveillance Regime Does Not Breach Human Rights Law, Tribunal Rules

Melanie Newman, TBIJ

A secret legal regime that governs mass surveillance by the UK intelligence agencies does not breach human rights, a tribunal ruled today.

The decision by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT), which oversees the intelligence agencies, is part of a legal challenge brought by Amnesty International, Privacy International, Liberty and other groups.
