The Public Interest Law Centre is bringing a case against the UK and Scottish government on behalf of our client Tilly Gifford. The Judicial Review action is due to take place on the 19th and 20th July 2018 at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

Working closely with Scottish lawyers we seek to obtain judgment that quashes the decison by the UK government for its failure to extend the Undercover Policing Inquiry (UCPI) north of the border; and/or the Scottish government failure to call its own inquiry into undercover political policing.

On the back of that we supported the conference to support the Judicial review challenge. However, we see that the organising of the Scottish Campaign Opposing Police Surveillance (SCOPS) as a major break through in organising activists through the movement around the issue of police surveillance.

SCOPS has its first committee meeting – if you live north of the border get involved – e-mail at
