British Human Rights group appeal against MI5 policy
British Human Rights group appeal against MI5 policy
Human Rights groups in Britain are appealing against a policy which allows informants of the MI5 participate in criminal activities, including kidnapping, torturing and murdering, media reports state.

The Pat Finucane Centre, Reprieve, Privacy International and the Committee on the Administration of Justice have filed a lawsuit against British government, claiming that the policy “purports to permit agents to participate in crime” and “immunizes” them from being prosecuted for their criminal ofences.

The groups demanded the policy be declared unlawful, yet the Investigatory Powers Tribunal voted for passing the policy and ruled it lawful on Friday, December 20.

According to a statement by the Tribunal, agents of the MI5 “have an implied power to engage in the activities which are the subject of the policy under challenge.”

Human Rights Groups strongly condemned the decision and claimed that there is a need to limit “what agents can do in the public’s name.”

“We think the bare majority of the IPT got it seriously wrong. We will seek permission to appeal to protect the public from this abusive secretive power,” said Ilia Siatitsa, legal officer of the Privacy International.

Daniel Holder, Deputy Director of the Committee on the Administration of Justice, explained that the policy has been used for a long time now and the “unlawful nature of informant conduct” is getting more formalized instead of being abandoned.
