Police kettling control technique to face historic legal challenge in Scotland

On Thursday 1 March 2012, legal representatives of the Glasgow Defence Campaign will lead the first legal challenge in Scotland against the draconian police practice of kettling peaceful protesters– arguing that use of this tactic by Strathclyde Police on 29th January 2011 was unlawful and represented an attack on human rights. The legal debate, raised as a devolution minute will be heard at the Glasgow District Court – where a full day has been set aside for the legal argument.
