Adam Wagner interviewed for BBC's Law in Action on social media prosecutions
Adam Wagner was recently interviewed by Joshua Rozenberg on BBC Radio 4's Law in Action programme. He was debating, along with Nadine Dorries MP, a recent series of criminal prosecutions against social media users. The debate centred on the implications for freedom of speech as protected by Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
The programme can be listened to here - the social media section is from 20 minutes in.
