Witness in ex-CBC host assault trial says she misled police

LONDON (AP) — Britain's media have lost a challenge to the unprecedented secrecy in the coverage of the trial of a British law student who had been accused of targeting former Prime Minister Tony Blair or planning a Mumbai-style attack.

The case centered around Erol Incedal, who was acquitted last year. All but a few reporters were barred from covering his trial and those that did were barred from reporting the case pending the outcome of the challenge. Media organizations say the case represented "important issues about the constitutional principle of open justice."

The U.K. Court of Appeal announced its decision Tuesday. While Judge John Thomas emphasized the importance of open justice, he says the trial judges made the right call in the interests of national security.

British prosecutors have formally dropped a sex-crimes prosecution against politician Greville Janner, who died before the start of court proceedings over decades-old allegations of abusing boys. Prosecutor Richard Whittam told a judge Friday, Jan. 15, 2016 that the law "makes no provision for posthumous proceedings." Police and child-abuse victims expressed outrage last year when prosecutors announced they would not charge Janner, although there was enough evidence to do so, because he had advanced Alzheimer's. Janner, a former Labour Party lawmaker and peer, died Dec. 19 aged 87. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis, file)
