The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, Joseph Cannataci, has issued a new report condemning today’s surveillance legislation and expressing grave concerns about the right to privacy in the digital age. The report, released on March 8, highlights recent laws in the UK, France and Germany, all of which Cannataci disagrees with. "There is little or no evidence to persuade me of either the efficacy or the proportionality of some of the extremely intrusive measures that have been introduced by new surveillance laws," he writes.
