“UK courts cannot force the handing over of journalistic material to foreign organizations…”

The request which was made through the Home Office failed after Senior Belfast Judge Tom Burgess agreed with the case put by the broadcasters.

He found UK courts cannot force the handing over of journalistic material to foreign organizations.

Just saying…
