Copy of leaked document

(This is a copy of what was written)

E.R Wednesday,25 February 2009

Written No: 410

Patrick Mercer (Newark): To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many UK-based websites have been closed down because they contain extremist material inciting terrorism in the last five years. [254791]


The legislation that allows a request to be made that unlawfully terrorism related material is modified or removed from the internet is Section 3 of the Terrorism Act 2006. Section 3 allows for the service of a notice by a constable where he or she is of the opinion that unlawfully terrorism-related material is available on an electronic service such as a website, on the person(s) responsible for that material. The notice requires that the unlawfully terrorism-related material is removed or modified within two working days. However, the preferred route of the police is to use informal contact with the communication service providers to request that the material is removed. To date no Section 3 notices have been issued as this informal route has proved effective but statistics covering the number of sites removed through such informal contact are not collected.

Phone conversations

As readers of my blog will be aware, I was supposed to attend Greyfriars police station in Bedford on request of DC Ian Holden so that he could interview me on February 19th.

I was left for 6 weeks with this impending arrest hanging over my head.

Given the circumstances there is no way I am going to walk down to the police station and hand myself in to the police so that they can arrest me and possibly imprison me over my blog - Political persecution!

Not just that, I am in America, this telephone conversation was to determine whether or not to go home and face the charges of seek asylum in the U.S

I have stated my position which you can hear in DC IH phone 3

The recordings are between myself and Detective Sergeant Steve Facer and Detective Constable Ian Holden.

Here are my legal rights to have recorded the conversation: Phone recording
