Pete Weatherby QC took part in an interview with BBC Radio Wales yesterday (07.06.17), to express his grave concern at Theresa May’s announcement that she will scrap Human Rights laws if they impede the fight against terrorism.

With more than 25 years' experience as a human rights barrister, Pete commented that we already have very robust anti-terror and immigration laws in this country, and that human rights laws have not got in the way of deporting foreign terrorists previously who have been subsequently tried in the court of law in their own countries, as suggested otherwise by Theresa May. 

He reiterated that the Human Rights Act is what protect us all, is a victims charter, and abolishing it is not the answer to fighting terrorism.
