The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that some aspects of British surveillance violated the European Convention on Human Rights. The case was sparked by revelations from US whistleblower Edward Snowden, and is being celebrated by civil liberty groups.
A complaint was brought by human rights groups and journalists.
It’s clear Donald Trump is a huge fan of Russian President Vladimir Putin. But whistleblower Edward Snowden says Americans shouldn’t get their hopes up.

There was always a starkly political quality to Chelsea Manning's case. Her unprecedented 35-year jail sentence was obviously designed to deter anyone from following her example. A crushing "pour encourager les autres" jail term that would have seen her left to languish in a maximum-security military prison until 2045. It was an exercise in political retribution, not justice.
Manning has served seven years of her 35-year sentence.
