25 Apr Privacy International Slams Outsourcing of Surveillance by State Spy Agencies
Privacy International recently slammed the “dangerous lack of oversight” on intelligence-sharing arrangements between state spy agencies.
The group argues that despite the importance of such sharing to national security, it could impinge on fundamental human rights as it could be used to circumvent constraints on domestic surveillance. Another particular problem intelligence outsourcing brings is that state agencies will not have enough control over their foreign partners.
Privacy International lawyer Scarlet Kim additionally revealed that intelligence sharing between countries is one of the most pervasive, but least regulated surveillance practices.
