How Big is the " WARGATE " ?
" WARGATE "
The countdown for knowing how big was "WARGATE" may have started with the latest developments in the case of "Ms Gun" !
News: "Ms Gun had been unprepared for the furore which followed. As a hunt started for the source, she decided to confess.
'I am a pretty emotional person and I felt I just couldn't go on working there after what I had done. I went to my line manager. I trusted her and respected her. She put her arm around me and I cried on her shoulder. She was great about it.'
Ms Gun was arrested, questioned and spent a night in custody before being released on bail. For the next eight months she was repeatedly questioned and re-bailed, before being charged under the Official Secrets Act.
Liberty, the civil rights group, took over Ms Gun's defence, and Ben Emmerson QC, a specialist in human rights laws, was appointed counsel.
The crux of the defence was that Ms Gun had taken the action because, she felt, the British government had acted illegally, both in taking part in the war without UN backing, and being involved in a plot to bug UN delegates.
Ms Gun's legal team demanded disclosure of government documents pertaining to the legality of the war. On Tuesday, they made a request for a full account of the advice Lord Goldsmith had given about the legal justification for war - "something ministers had repeatedly refused to do."
