Judge agreed Rabbani was "trying to protect confidential material" & is of "good character" - yet still found he'd violated Terrorism Act.

One lesson from Rabbani judgment: if stopped under Sch 7 & you handle confidential info for work - make it immediately clear to officers.

Interesting background on Trump's "rocket man" speech. Ignored aides' warnings not to launch personal attack on Kim.

The Sch 7 code of practice (2015) says it's at officers' discretion whether "examined" person gets legal advice. & no legal aid - must pay.
