    Privacy International has written to the investigatory powers commissioner (IPC) requesting an urgent review into potentially unlawful use by the UK police of mobile phone extraction (MPE) technology. Created by the controversial Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the role of IPC is to provide oversight of the intelligence services and police. The rights group wants the IPC lord justice Fulford to investigate whether there’s a proper legal basis for the police to be using MPE tech and whether it’s “necessary and proportionate” to do so given its intrusive nature.
