The Home Secretary is trying to prevent secret evidence at the 7 July terror attack inquests from being heard in public.
Theresa May is seeking a judicial review of the coroner's ruling in favour of the bereaved families, who want to see the evidence and question the security service, MI5, about the intelligence gathered before the bombings on London's transport network in the summer of 2005.
Last week, Lady Justice Hallett rejected arguments by lawyers for MI5, who argued that she had powers to exclude victims' families from the hearing while she was examining the highly sensitive documents. She said the evidence could be edited to remove names of sources and other confidential information which might threaten national security. Yesterday, the Home Office said it would appeal against her decision. It said that while it welcomed the inquests, they did not mean "that we will put lives at risk and undermine our national security by not protecting sensitive material".
TVNL Comment: For those who do not know...those attackes happened at the same time and locations that drills, simulating that type of attack, were taking place. This was made public that day. This is how false flag terror attacks happen.
