Secret gag on UK Times preventing publication of Minton report into toxic waste dumping

 

WIKILEAKS:This document, as sent confidentially to the editor of the UK Times newspaper, contains variation on an existing secret High Court gag-order, a so-called “super-injunction”, blocking the UK press from disclosing the existence or contents of the “Minton Report” into toxic waste dumping by Trafigura, appearing on WikiLeaks. The order was first obtained against the Guardian on the 11th of September, 2009 and was updated several times, including on the 18th of September 2009.

The secret injunction caused a scandal in the UK on 12-13 October 2009, when lawyers for Trafigura, Carter-Ruck, told the Guardian that it prevented the Guardian reporting a parliamentary question by Paul Farrelly MP mentioning the Minton report. This contravened the longstanding assumption that the reporting of Parliament should not be hindered in any way.

Following parliamentary condemnation, Carter-Ruck agreed to amend the order so it would not apply to the Parliamentary record, but would, in all other ways, continue to gag the press.

This updated variation was then faxed to UK newspaper The Times on 16, October 2009.

The injuction, in all other respects, remains in effect at the time of posting this.

Allow me to add my thankyou’s to Julian Assange and the Wikileaks Team for giving us the chance to find out what is really going on behind our backs
