Opinion by Jemima Stratford QC and Tim Johnston makes front page of the Guardian


Jemima Stratford QC and Tim Johnston were asked by Tom Watson, chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Drones, to provide a wide-ranging legal opinion concerning the lawfulness of the UK government’s interception, use and transfer of intelligence data.

The opinion was delivered yesterday and received front page coverage in the Guardian this morning. It raises serious questions about whether or not the security services are acting within the scope of the law. It also questions whether the law itself (the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000) is in line with the European Convention on Human Rights.

A copy of the opinion is available here.
