A lawyer who represents National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden and has spoken on his behalf numerous times was detained while going through customs at Heathrow airport in London.She also mentions being put on a 'inhibited persons' list. Human Rights lawyer Jen Robinson has also been subject to this abuse.
Jesselyn Radack told Firedoglake she was directed to a specific Heathrow Border Force agent. He "didn't seem interested" in her passport. She was then subjected to "very hostile questioning."
Meantime, lawyers, activists" hell, let's call them what they are, troublemakers"--"get harassed without anyone with any authority having to front up and accept responsibility. It's all part of the constant process of delegitimising dissent.
