AB v Hampshire Constabulary

Investigatory powers – Regulation of investigatory powers. The recording of a meeting with the claimant at his home where a police officer's body worn camera had been switched on, but the claimant had not been informed that it had been on, was capable of amounting to 'surveillance' within the meaning of Pt II of Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal, in reaching that conclusion, distinguished the case from Re a Complaint of Surveillance ([2014] 2 All ER 576) and would continue with its investigation of the claimant's complaint under s 65 after due liaison with the parties.
