Big Brother Watch’s response to Court of Appeal judgment in Dr Bridges’ challenge to live facial recognition

Big Brother Watch Team / August 11, 2020

This is a huge step forward in the fight against facial recognition and should deter police from lawlessly rolling out other kinds of oppressive technologies they’ve been looking at. Dr Ed Bridges and Liberty have been admirably courageous and undeterred in their legal battle against South Wales Police and we have them to thank for this historic win. Now it’s vital we achieve a legislative ban on live facial recognition to end this dangerously authoritarian surveillance for good.
