UK govt has gone ‘way beyond’ prescribed limits of press freedom — RT Op-Edge

The UK claims mass surveillance is crucial to national security but seems unwilling to provide evidence of that. The government should shoulder responsibility, but instead lacks accountability, Freedom of Information campaigner Thomas Hughes told RT.In a joint letter to British Prime Minister David Cameron, 70 human rights organizations from 40 countries recently stated their concern over the UK’s reaction to revelations of mass surveillance.Increased pressure on media outlets reporting on the leaks leads to the assumption that those responsible for overseeing the actions of security agencies are simply trying to cover a trail, Hughes said.
