The UK are supplying surveillance equipment to the authoritarian Turkish state.

The UK, aware of authoritarian Erdogan’s targeting of political dissidents, still granted several licenses to export surveillance equipment to Turkey in 2017.

Quote:
UK export regulators gave the green light to sales of £2.3 million worth of ‘telecommunications interception equipment’ to Turkey in March 2017, long after its Islamist government were proven to be targeting political dissidents, human rights activists and feminist groups often without charge.

Surveillance Group were granted all five separate licences, a Worcester-based company who specialise in open-source data collection, particularly via social media, as well as facial recognition and other detection technologies.
