Britain is treating journalists as terrorists – believe me, I know | Sarah Harrison | Comment is free | The Guardian
If Britain is going to investigate journalists as terrorists take and destroy our documents, force us to give up passwords and answer questions – how can we be sure we can protect our sources? But this precedent is now set; no journalist can be certain that if they leave, enter or transit through the UK this will not happen to them. My lawyers advise me not to return home.
It’s probably not a great idea to sit silently on the sidelines until every last person who fought for your basic human rights has fled your country.
