25-05-2009 11:17LONDON: Today, Thursday 21 May 2009, the Court of Appeal found that
the Metropolitan police broke the law in its routine surveillance of people involved
in lawful and peaceful political activity. The legal action arose when staff members from Campaign Against Arms Trade legitimately attended the 2005 Annual General Meeting of
Reed Elsevier, as shareholders, to question the board about its acquisition of
a company which organised armsfairs. The police will now need to ensure
that their surveillance practices and record keeping comply with the court
ruling and human rights legislation.
