Courts and Terror

The Guardian reports the first media briefing of the new Lord Chief Justice for England and Wales, Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, in which the country's new senior judge promisses to support judges in their interpretation of anti-terror legislation, even when such rulings would be inconvenient for government and police. Encouraging!

The newspaper's website also has this handy comparative overview of anti-terror legislation, prepared by the Foreign Office.
