Liberty responds to Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) Tempora judgment

05 December 2014

Responding to the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) ruling in Liberty's challenge to Tempora, James Welch, Legal Director for Liberty, said:

"So a secretive court thinks that secret safeguards shown to it in secret are an adequate protection of our privacy. The IPT cannot grasp why so many of us are deeply troubled about GCHQ’s Tempora operation: a seemingly unfettered power to rifle through our on-line communications."
