Investigatory Powers Tribunal Judgment on Equipment Interference

The Commissioner read with interest the Investigatory Powers Tribunal's judgment in the case brought by Privacy International and Others against the Foreign Secretary and GCHQ in relation to equipment interference which was published on 12 February 2016.
 
The Commissioner said: "This case raised a number of interesting and complex issues. The fact that now these issues have been aired and argued out and the IPT has issued a full  judgment will be extremely useful to all those involved in seeking and granting warrants and authorisations, as well as for those responsible for oversight."

The judgment is available at: http://www.ipt-uk.com/docs/Privacy_Greennet_and_Sec_of_State.pdf
