UK PM criticized for secret trial plan

UK PM criticized for secret trial plan 13 Dec 2012 Campaigners for civil liberties have criticized British Prime Minister David Cameron for defending the Tory-led government's controversial plans for secret trials. Legal action charity Reprieve condemned the scheme to extend the use of secret hearings in courts, saying it was aimed at covering up Britain's role in torture. Cameron claimed in the Commons on Tuesday that it "will always be a judge that decides" whether to make a trial secret. Lawyers and campaigners warn that such controversial proposals would put the British government above the law.
