UK Police Charge Activist Under Terrorism Law For Refusing To Hand Over Passwords

A human right group activist has been charged with terrorism offenses for failing to turn over his passwords at a London airport.

Muhammad Rabbani, international director at Cage, a group that focuses on investigating human rights, torture cases and other injustices, was charged Wednesday after refusing to turn over his phone and computer passwords at the UK border in 2016.

Rabbani previously told The Guardian that he had been stopped crossing the UK border "at least 20 times over the past decade" and had refused to turn over passwords before.

In his most recent encounter, Rabbani said he was carrying client-attorney privileged files relating to a case built around alleged US torture, was arrested and held overnight at a police station, then released on bail.
