Open Rights Group "We're taking the Government to Court"

Source: https://www.privacynotprism.org.uk/...

We have really exciting news in our Privacy Not Prism case!

The European Court has completed its preliminary examination of our case and has now asked the UK Government to justify how GCHQ's practices comply with Article 8 of the European Convention: the right to privacy.

The court has also given the case a rare 'priority' designation. The Government has until 2 May to respond, after which the case will move into the final stages before judgment.

In September we submitted a legal action, with English PEN and Big Brother Watch, on behalf of all Internet users in the UK and EU against excessive state surveillance.

Daniel Carey, our solicitor in the case, says:
"This gives real hope to the public that the European Court of Human Rights will require reform if the Government continues to insist that nothing is wrong."
