Privacy International vs Vodafone Cable

Aperçu de la plainte

Date de soumission 5 November 2013
Statut actuel Rejected
Thème HR violations facilitated by 6 UK telecom companies
Résumé de la plainte The complaint alleges that the telecom companies facilitated mass interception of internet and telephone traffic by granting the UKs Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) access to their fibre optic networks for the Tempora surveillance program. Privacy International argues that by collaborating with GCHQ and providing access to the networks, the companies knowingly enabled the mass and indiscriminate collection of data and interception of communications and thus contributed to the violation of human rights, including the right to privacy and freedom of expression.
Développements/Résultat The UK NCP forwarded the complaints to the companies named in the complaint for a response. All companies refuted the allegations and insist they are acting in accordance with the law.

In July 2014 the UK NCP rejected the complaint on the basis that it thinks the complainant was not able to substantiate a link between the 6 telecom companies and the allegations. The NCP is of the opinion that reports based on documents provided by Edward Snowden and published by the Guardian and Suddeutsche Zeitung do not substantiate a sufficient link between the companies and mass surveillance.

The publication of the initial assessment was delayed to October 2014 to await the UK NCP's Steering Board decision on the complainant's request for a review of the NCP's procedure in handling the complaint. The Steering Board decided in September to refuse the request for review and allowed the initial assessment to be made public.
