Activities

Privacy International partnered with Reprieve to bring a lawsuit against the UK government in connection with MI5 operatives' express right to disobey UK laws. As a result of this victory, the UK government published an annex of the 2016 Investigatory Powers Act about criminal activity by employees of MI5.[1]

Illegal surveillance by MI5

In 2018, it emerged that MI5 unlawfully tapped Privacy International's communications.[2]
