A Freedom of Information Case Study: Challenging 'Neither Confirm Nor Deny'

A case study into our long-running battle for information on the UK police force's use of surveillance tech

FOI cover

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recently issued a series of decisions in Privacy International’s long-running battle for information about UK police forces' acquisition of IMSI catchers. This case study provides an in-depth summary and analysis of this process.

We hope it is useful to both campaigners seeking greater transparency from policing bodies, and more widely to Freedom of Information campaigners who are trying to challenge 'neither confirm nor deny' responses to FOI requests to public bodies.
