Terror Flaws - heavy handed intimidation on journalists


www.mirror.co.uk

TWO Daily Mirror journalists were arrested under anti-terror laws, and their homes raided at midnight by police, after they tried to test security at a rail depot.

Reporter Tom Parry and photographer Roger Allen were held for 12 hours and quizzed at length under the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001.

Meanwhile their family homes were being searched and computers, photographic equipment and even personal possessions seized by British Transport Police officers.

Slightly worrying to read this, and the part about 82 year old Walter Wolfgang who was arrested under anti-terrorism laws for heckling Jack Straw over the Iraq war.

A typical example of how this hurts those it proposes to help more than aids them IMO.
