Rabbani found guilty, vows to appeal after resisting demand for iPhone, laptop passcodes

By Iain Thomson in San Francisco 25 Sep 2017

Muhammad Rabbani, international director of human-rights non-profit CAGE, was today convicted under UK anti-terror law for refusing to unlock his iPhone and laptop for police when entering the country.

Rabbani, 36, was found guilty at Westminster magistrates’ court of willful obstruction under Schedule 7 paragraph 18(1)(c) of the 2000 UK Terrorism Act. This law gives Brit cops the right to detain anyone entering Blighty on suspicion alone and hold them incommunicado for up to nine hours.

The plod also insists the anti-terror powers allow officers to demand people's login details for their laptops, phones and other devices, so that data can be extracted for forensic examination and storage.
