UK Spying - European Court Action Fast Tracked
« on: January 27, 2014, 03:32:38 am »
Whilst some of us have been aware for many years now that our governments has been throwing our money around like it came out of a fountain to spy on every citizen instead of those whom it has intelligence on, it seems that theres a small matter of the law to comply with.

Back in December, we wrote about a legal action that a group of digital rights activists had brought against GCHQ, alleging that the UK's mass online surveillance programs have breached the privacy of tens of millions of people across the UK and Europe. In an unexpected turn of events, the court involved -- the European Court of Human Rights -- has put the case in the fast lane:

The court has completed its preliminary examination of the case and has communicated it to the British government, asking it to justify how GCHQ's practices and the current system of oversight comply with the right to privacy under Article 8 of the European Convention. The court has also given the case a rare 'priority' designation. The government now has until 2 May to respond, after which the case will move into the final stages before judgment.

Let right be done  :yes:
