RT logoIn an historic ruling, a British intelligence tribunal has ordered UK spy agency GCHQ to destroy communications it collected unlawfully from Libyan dissident Sami al-Saadi.

Media Coalition To Challenge UK Terror Trial Secrecy – 29 April 2015

RT logoA ban on reporting a terrorism trial and the confiscation of journalists’ court notes pertaining to the proceedings are set to be challenged in an appeal court by a media coalition.

The trial, which took place at the Old Bailey in March this year, saw law student Erol Incedal cleared of preparing acts of terrorism.

The 27-year-old was then sentenced to three and a half years in prison for possession of a memory card which contained a bomb making manual.

Carried out under levels of secrecy unprecedented in the UK, the trial saw only a small number of journalists permitted to attend.

These few were forbidden to report anything they saw or heard. At the end of each day of the trial their notes were confiscated and locked in a safe until proceedings reopened.

After becoming permanently lodged, the balls then destroy the tumor with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

The tiny spheres can therefore continue to deliver treatment for an extended period of time after initial insertion.
