Big Brother launches its landmark legal challenge against the Metropolitan Police’s use of facial recognition. The High Court will now decide whether the case can proceed.
Director Silkie Carlo said: “When the police use facial recognition surveillance they subject thousands of people in the area to highly sensitive identity checks without consent.”
“We’re hoping the court will intervene, so the lawless use of facial recognition can be stopped. It is crucial our public freedoms are protected.”
