For those who are interested, Privacy International have commenced legal action against the UK government demanding export controls on surveillance technology. 

Privacy International has given the government 21 days to respond. If the government has failed to act by the time this deadline expires, Privacy International will file for judicial review and if appropriate seek an urgent injunctionpreventing British companies from maintaining and updating systems already previously sold to repressive regimes, and stopping any new exports in their tracks.
