May 28, 2021
On 27 May 2021, LSTS Researcher and FWO Aspirant Juraj Sajfert provided a statement at Tech Monitor concerning the GCHQ bulk surveillance ruling of the European Court of Human Rights.
Specifically, Sajfert commented: “As regards the UK adequacy, this judgment can only strengthen the UK case. The UK can argue that its mass surveillance regime is not per se violating the European Convention of Human Rights and that it will, or already did, easily bring itself in line with the Strasbourg court’s requirements. The violations the Grand Chamber find are of a rather technical nature and can be fixed easily.”
