Abstract

 “One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter” - How well does the current law relating to proscription of terrorist organisations protect the public and does this law encroach on an individual’s Human Rights?This article will critically analyse and evaluate the Terrorism Act 2000, in particular s.3 and the powers of proscription, in terms of restrictions to human rights and civil liberties, as well as assess the classification of a terrorist and the issues regarding its wide-reaching definition.
