• UK Defence Ministry's communications director said his department "should not waste any time" on investigative media organisation, Declassified

-Declassified described as a hostile website, rather than a proper news organisation by Ministry of Defence's communications director- MOD press officers believed there was a "blanket ban" on contact with the organisation

- Military officer on loan to MOD press office proposed Declassified be "put on a list of organisations which the Department would not engage with"

We believe that Investigative Journalism is critical to holding powers to account and Declassified is part of that mission.

The UK government has violated the freedom of the press. This is what the European Court of Human Rights ruled on September 13 following a four year case brought by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Privacy International together with their coalition partners.

In a significant win, which has major implications for the UK government, the ECHR in Strasbourg ruled that mass surveillance by GCHQ and other intelligence agencies without adequate safeguards to protect the freedom of the press is unlawful. The case will force the government to review how it intercepts journalists’ communications, and to put better safeguards in place to ensure that a journalist can continue to properly protect their sources.

This case was part of a wider submission brought by:

– The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Amnesty International, Bytes for All, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights, the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, the Irish Council for Civil Liberties, the Legal Resources Centre (South Africa), Liberty and Privacy International.

– Big Brother Watch, Open Rights Group, English PEN and Dr Constanze Kurz

– The Bureau of Investigative Journalism and Alice Ross.
