A Muslim man detained by police at an airport on his way home from Hajj, the holy journey to Mecca, has won a significant legal battle over the UK's anti-terror laws.
The High Court declared that Abdelrazag Elosta was unlawfully refused access to a solicitor before he was detained and questioned under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
A judge ruled that Mr Elosta had undergone "45 minutes of unlawful questioning".
Allowing Mr Elosta's application for judicial review, Mr Justice Bean said: "The examining officers had no power to question the claimant after he had requested the presence of a solicitor and prior to the solicitor's arrival."
