While flying back home I was stopped by border police...

They asked for my password and I declined. Now I am being threatened with prison... I am not alone in this. Around 50,000 people in the UK are stopped each year while travelling. None of them are ever suspected of a crime. In my case, this has happened more than 20 times. -, 17 May 2017

London – CAGE International Director Muhammad Rabbani was charged today at Bethnal Green police station for wilfully obstructing or seeking to frustrate a search examination under Schedule 7 when he was detained at Heathrow in November.

Mr Rabbani was unable to hand over the passwords to his devices as he was carrying crucial evidence taken from a torture survivor and did not have permission from the client to share the information.
