On 26 September, a tribunal ruled that British spy agencies broke the law by storing and reviewing data belonging to Privacy International (PI). The advocacy group launched a challenge against MI5, GCHQ, and the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS – aka MI6) at the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) in June 2015. The IPT hears complaints against the security services.
Spooks have acted unlawfully

The IPT says that MI5, the GCHQ, and the SIS all illegally held data belonging to PI. The spy agencies hoovered up PI’s details as part of its mass surveillance regimes.

Secret investigations into Privacy International?

The Canary reported yesterday that MI5 admitted to “unlawfully” retaining PI’s bulk data. MI5 said this was part of “investigations” involving PI. The exact nature of these “investigations” remains unclear. The IPT confirmed that MI5 violated the law by storing and accessing PI’s bulk data. MI5 told the IPT that it destroyed this illegally retained information on 24 September, the day before the last hearing.

The shear scale and amount of Information held by British Spy Agencies on US ALL :ohmy: Is staggering, No one & No where is safe.
The UK has the most CCTV in the World, Every time you use the internet, Make a phone call, Use your Bank Account, Shop, in fact anything;
Your Information is being collected by British Spy's; Most of the time we do not realise its happening, But WHO and WHY is all this data being used for.
I wager its Not for our Benefit.
