Punishment without trial
UK anti-terror laws create new crimes of association with a broadly defined 'terrorism', while also authorising punishment without trial, thus denying due process of law. Punishments take the following forms: detention, control orders, deportation orders, freezing of bank accounts, restrictions on travel, withdrawal of UK passports, etc. Such punishment is based on 'evidence' which need not be tested in court - or which can even be kept secret, supposedly on grounds of 'national security'.

Oppose the Counter Terrorism Act 2008
The fifth Counter-Terrorism Act since 2000 was passed in 2008 containing many extensions to the injustice of ‘anti-terror powers’, which make exceptions to normal criminal law, especially protection of suspects.
