Snowden's lawyer harassed at Heathrow Airport
Publicerad den 17 feb 2014"Who is Edward Snowden?" "Do you know him?" "Where is Bradley Manning?"
Those are just some of the questions that Jesselyn Radack, a human rights advocate, whistleblower group member and lawyer to former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, was asked while being detained and questioned by customs staff at London's Heathrow Airport.
As she was going through customs, Radack was led to a separate room by a Heathrow Border Force agent who showed no interest in her documents, but seemed intent on asking her a series of questions that appeared aimed at emotional intimidation.
She tweeted about the incident, then came out with a public statement denouncing the whole practice and the harassment it often entails: "The government, whether in the US, UK or elsewhere does not have the authority to monitor, harass or intimidate lawyers for representing unpopular clients." RT's Ameera David speaks with Radack about her experience and why she was singled out by British authorities.
