UK Terrorism Act: ’far-right’ leader charged for refusing to give phone codes

Paul Golding, leader of Britain First, has been charged with non-compliance of Sch 7 of the Terrorism Act for refusing to give police access to his electronic devices while returning from the Russian Parliament.

Don't know British law but Americans have remarkably few rights when at, or crossing, the border -- unfortunately. Maybe this administration could work to change that? Not aware of any such efforts (just the reverse) but we can hope.
