"See you in Court" - Liberty responds to passing of the Snoopers' Charter

17 November 2016

Following the passing of the Investigatory Powers Bill by Parliament, Bella Sankey, Policy Director for Liberty, said:

"The passage of the Snoopers' Charter through Parliament is a sad day for British liberty. Under the guise of counter-terrorism, the state has achieved totalitarian-style surveillance powers – the most intrusive system of any democracy in human history. It has the ability to indiscriminately hack, intercept, record, and monitor the communications and internet use of the entire population.

“Liberty has fought tooth and nail against this terrifying legislation, but the paucity of political opposition has been devastating. The fight does not end here. Our message to Government: see you in Court."
