Latest from Liberty

James Welch

It is thanks only to Edward Snowden’s revelations, and the scant disclosures we and other organisations have been able to prise from the Government, that we know anything whatsoever about what the intelligence services are up to. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal believes that there are sufficient safeguards to protect us from industrial-scale abuse of our privacy. We disagree, and hope the European Court of Human Rights will finally make clear to our security services that they cannot operate in near complete     secrecy.

James Welch
Legal Director

Liberty campaigns to protect basic rights and freedoms through the courts, in Parliament and in the wider community. We do this through a combination of public campaigning, test case litigation, parliamentary work, policy analysis and the provision of free advice and information.
