#PirateParty - Snooping Law Found Illegal - Friday, 17 July, 2015 - 12:00 Controversial surveillance legislation that was pushed through Parliament in days has been found to be unlawful by the High Court. It was found that the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014 (DRIPA) failed to provide clear and precise rules to protect data and that the access is not authorised by a court and independent body.
