EPIC Seeks to Intervene in Privacy Case Before European Court of Human Rights

EPIC has asked the European Court of Human Rights for permission to submit an amicus brief in a case concerning mass surveillance. Ten international human rights NGOs brought the case to challenge UK surveillance laws and practices. The case concerns Tempora, PRISM, and Upstream programs, and the interception of communications by UK intelligence services and the National Security Agency. EPIC proposes to assist the Court in understanding U.S. surveillance law, and to provide relevant information EPIC has obtained through freedom of information litigation. EPIC routinely files amicus briefs in cases concerning emerging privacy and civil liberties issues.
