Responding to Prime Minister David Cameron's speech announcing new counter-terror proposals, Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, said: "Dumping suspect citizens like toxic waste is a very strange way of promoting the rule of law. Summary powers to 'stop and seize' passports at airports will prove just as divisive and counterproductive as the infamous stop and search powers that preceded them. When will our governments learn that there are no short cuts to our security? It needs to be built on intelligence, evidence and justice, not speeches, soundbites and ever-more new laws."
