The Case

Investigatory powers Regulation of investigatory powers. The first and second claimants were awarded 3,000 as just satisfaction for the respondent Chief Constable's breach of their rights by communications data authorisations, although the vindication of the rights of the other claimants by a previous judgment was such that no award of money was necessary in their cases. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal found no reason to depart from the normal practice that no award of costs would be made and gave directions for the treatment of the data pending its eventual destruction.
