STAND IN SOLIDARITY: Tuesday 20th April, 9.00am
Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL
CONCLUSION OF KATE WILSON’S IPT CASE
A decade after Kate’s case began to be heard in the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT), it will conclude in a series of trial hearings from 20th-28th April.
Among other issues, this case will examine sexist discrimination within the Metropolitan Police Service, and the systemic disregard for women’s fundamental human rights between 1998 and 2010.
The claim refers to the actions of a number of officers serving in the secret political spycops units, the SDS and NPOIU, during that time.
Kate has already received startling admissions that the police breached her Article 3, 8 and 10 rights (under the ECHR) resulting from the actions of at least 6 different undercover officers. She is, through these proceedings, the only person to have received significant disclosure of police ‘intelligence’ files held about her.
We will update you on the conclusion of the trial at the end of the month.
