UK spy agencies broke privacy rules says tribunal

It was a “highly significant judgement”, Privacy International said.
As part of its review of the spy agencies’ activities, the IPT examined the organisations’ collection of communications data – involving the “who, where, when, how and with whom” was involved in conversations, but not their contents – and personal information about people.
Such data is “vital for identifying and developing intelligence targets”, according to GCHQ.
Article 8 of the ECHR states, however, that all citizens have the right to a private life and that any interference with personal data must be lawful and necessary.
“It is very significant,” said Graham Smith of London law firm Bird & Bird.
He added that much of the data collection had been carried out under an older piece of law – section 94 of the Telecommunications Act 1984.
“It gave absolutely no clue at all that it could be used for this particular purpose,” said Mr Smith.
“Everyone accepts that what the agencies do operationally has to be secret, but the laws that say what they can and can’t do shouldn’t be secret.”
