EU challenges Snoopers' Charter - dubbed as the most extreme surveillance law in a democracy.
In recent years UK, France, and Belgium have passed privacy-infringing surveillance laws to combat terrorism. Privacy
activists fear that these laws violate privacy rights of all citizens and, thus, have filed lawsuits.
The European Advocate General Campos Sánchez-Bordona has now spoken in favor of privacy rights:
the means and methods of combating terrorism must be compatible with the requirements of the rule of law and
based on the EU’s charter of fundamental rights.
