N v The Police

IPT/07/02/CH

This Ruling found that there was an interference with privacy contrary to Article 8 in respect of the use of directed surveillance by using existing public CCTV. The decision to authorise surveillance had taken place after the Crown Prosecution Service had taken the decision not to prosecute the Complainant. The subsequent decision on remedies ordered that the CCTV recording should be destroyed and a declaration should be made that there was a breach of the Complainantís Article 8 rights.
