UK Muslim Groups Take Schedule 7 Terror Law To The Supreme Court | CAGE

Schedule 7 was thrust into the spotlight last August when it was used to detain David Miranda, the Brazilian partner of a Guardian journalist, as he transited London’s Heathrow Airport on his way home to Rio de Janeiro. Mr Miranda was interrogated by six officers and his laptop, mobile phone, video game, and memory cards confiscated. Wednesday’s Supreme Court hearing relates to the case of Sylvie Beghal, a French national of Algerian descent, who was stopped under the powers after arriving with her children at East Midlands Airport on a flight from Paris. The mother of three refused to answer the questions put to her – which included requests for information about the French-Algerian community in the UK – without the presence of a lawyer and was subsequently convicted for wilfully failing to comply with her duty under Schedule 7 to answer questions.
