Assange lawyer questioned at Heathrow 20 Apr 2012 An Australian lawyer acting on behalf of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is due to arrive in Sydney this morning amid claims she was initially barred from boarding the flight. Jennifer Robinson, who has represented Mr Assange in his British legal challenge against extradition to Sweden, says she was stopped at London's Heathrow airport on Thursday and told she could not board a plane to Australia until she was cleared by the Australian High Commission there.

Julian Assange's lawyer 'prevented from boarding flight at Heathrow' 19 Apr 2012 A lawyer for the WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, has said she was stopped at Heathrow airport and told she was on a watch list requiring official approval before she could return to her native Australia. Jennifer Robinson said a member of airport security told her she "must have done something controversial" and that they would have to contact the Australian high commission in London before letting her on her flight. The Australian human rights lawyer was later allowed on to a plane bound for Sydney, where she is due to speak at the Commonwealth Law Conference on Friday.

Obama Administration Again Proposes Polar Bear Extinction Plan --New Rule Echoes Bush Plan Ignoring Polar Bears' Plight (Center for Biological Diversity) 17 Apr 2012 The Obama administration announced today that it is reissuing a Bush-era regulation that sharply limits protections for polar bears under the Endangered Species Act. Both the current proposal and the previous Bush rule exclude activities occurring outside the range of polar bears - such as the greenhouse gas emissions of industrial polluters like coal plants - from regulations that could help stop the bear's extinction. Today's announcement comes as a result of a court order that struck down the Bush rule in October 2011.
