Terror case gagging order upheld
9 February 2016
From the section UK
The Court of Appeal has upheld an unprecedented gagging order preventing the media reporting why a terrorism suspect was cleared at trial.
Senior judges said it was right that the full details of the Old Bailey case remained secret.
London student Erol Incedal was found not guilty in March last year of preparing for acts of terrorism.
The BBC and other media organisations challenged the reporting restrictions imposed by the trial judge.
