Legality of judicial review of IPT decisions

R (Privacy International) v Investigatory Powers Tribunal [2017] EWHC 114 (Admin)

Judicial Review against a decision of the Investigatory Powers Tribunal that held that s 5 of the Intelligence Services Act 1994 was wide enough to encompass computer and network exploitation. The case sought to establish that s 67 (8) of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 did not prevent judicial review of a decision of the IPT when it errs in law, and that the proper construction of s 5 of the 1994 Act does not permit such computer and network exploitation.

Jonathan Glasson QC was involved in this case.
