Were weapons planted on this protester? By Jon Silverman BBC Home affairs analyst
An anti-capitalist Briton awaiting trial says Greek police planted
Molotov cocktails and other weapons on him. Perhaps uniquely,
there is video footage of the arrest which supports his case.
The arrest of anti-capitalist demonstrators has become so much a
part of the fabric of set piece events like the G8, World Trade
Organisation or European Union summits that the media takes them for granted.
But the tactics used by the police on such occasions, often with
the support of politicians, deserve regular scrutiny because
important civil liberties are at stake. The fact that a Briton and
two Spaniards are in jail in Greece, facing sentences of up to 25
years, is a case in point.
