A recent UK tribunal that GCHQ illegally spied on us means that we can now try and find out if they spied on you.

The Tribunal’s decision was the first time that the court ruled against the intelligence agencies since it was established in 2000.

It found that GCHQ collected data from the NSA’s Prism and Upstream programmes was unlawful, because the rules governing the collection were kept secret.

According to documents disclosed by Edward Snowden, those programmes spied “by default”, meaning that millions of people could have had information taken by GCHQ.

“The public have a right to know if they were illegally spied on, and GCHQ must come clean on whose records they hold that they should never have had in the first place,” said Eric King, deputy director of Privacy International. “There are few chances that people have to directly challenge the seemingly unrestrained surveillance state, but individuals now have a historic opportunity finally hold GCHQ accountable for their unlawful actions.”
