Max Hill QC quotes Index on Censorship on the Counter Terrorism and Border Security Bill


On 20 June 2018 the Joint Committee on Human Rights at Westminster took evidence on the Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill 2018. During this session Max Hill QC spoke of the human rights implications of the bill and quoted Index on Censorship’s concerns about clause 3 on the “obtaining or viewing material over the internet”.

“Clearly there are risks to journalists and others,” Hill said. “They [Index] expressed concern about ‘the potential restrictive and frightening effect on researchers, students, academics and journalists, amongst others, who are researching case studies, making arguments and carrying out interviews.'”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_basic_grid post_type=”post” max_items=”4″ element_width=”6″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1530020508289-010a9f50-32d0-6″ taxonomies=”20″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
