The Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board held a hearing on Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act that gives the government authority to conduct surveillance overseas. The third panel focused on international law and electronic surveillance activities. They analyzed such international laws as the United Nations charter and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights treaty. In addition, they compared U.S. government surveillance programs with other countries, and transparency and oversight issues.

Section 702 was meant to apply only to non-U.S. persons abroad. The scope of the program was revealed through the leaks of former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden. close
