The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France, ruled that mass surveillance carried out by British intelligence agency GCHQ violated the European Convention on Human Rights. The court stated that the surveillance included indiscriminate “population-level” data collection and that there was a lack of oversight in the collection process with no safeguards to prevent the abuse of the data collected. The court ruled that because of these issues the GCHQ violated people’s right to a private life. RT’s Trinity Chavez Reports.
