 January 22, 2016  Court, Non-U.S., Surveillance

Roi Perez reports:

The European Court of Human Rights has found the Hungarian Government guilty of violating article eight of the European Convention of Human rights – ‘the right to privacy’.

The judgement was passed because of Hungary’s failure to provide “sufficient precise, effective and comprehensive” measures that would limit surveillance to only people it suspected of crimes.

The case was brought forward by activists, Máté Szabó and Beatrix Vissy, who took the Hungarian government to the ECHR’s Fourth Section over the law in 2014 on the grounds that it infringed their human rights.
