Bureau of Investigative Journalism Challenges Government Surveillance of Journalists

    In the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations, the lack of privacy or protection for UK journalists and their sources under the current Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act has become abundantly clear.

    To address the evident threat that this situation presents to investigative journalism, both now and in the future, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism have filed a case with the European Court of Human Rights.

    If the court finds in favour of the Bureau, it will force a response from the UK Government on this issue. We await a ruling on this important case.
