Our Response to the SC’s Technical Committee on Pegasus #SaveOurPrivacy

The Technical Committee constituted by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to investigate the Pegasus revelations made in July 2021 reached out to IFF’s Executive Director, Mr. Apar Gupta with a questionnaire on the legality of surveillance in India. On March 17, 2022, we shared our responses with a detailed analysis that focussed on the need for comprehensive, legislative reforms. The first step to it is fixing accountability for Pegasus.

As mentioned by IFF folks in a tweet, the following is the link for the general public to provide their inputs by 31/3. :point_down:

I was surprised to find that we have to upload a Govt issued photo ID to complete the process. Is this standard practice for SC committees? Given that we don’t have a personal data protection law (irony!) I hope the committee will appropriately safeguard the uploaded pdf. Any thoughts on this by 30/3 are welcome.

Hi sir, let me get back on the government ID requirement. To my mind it has never been insisted in public consultations.

Thanks @aparatbar for your quick response. I understand though if you are very busy responding/reacting to the latest horror aka The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill 2022. It is just that I am hoping that lots of individuals will give their inputs to the “pegasus committee” and I don’t want them to be put-off by an unusual govt. id requirement.
