Liberty et al’s appeal to the European Court of Human Rights

10 Human Rights Organisations and United Kingdom, App No. 24960/15

On April 11, 2015, Privacy International, Bytes For All, Amnesty International, Liberty, the American Civil Liberties Union, Canadian Civil Liberties Union, Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, Irish Council for Civil Liberties, and the Legal Resources Centre filed an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights from the IPT’s judgment that the UK’s Tempora program does not violate the ECHR. Also challenged on appeal was the IPT’s judgment that with the publication of the Intelligence Services’ disclosures in its Judgments of December 5, 2014 and February 6, 2015, the UK’s sharing of information obtained through the NSA’s Prism and upstream data collection programs no longer violated the ECHR.
