Sun Journalists Allege News Corporation's Cooperation With Inquiry a Violation of Human Rights

From the Guardian: Some Sun reporters are preparing a human rights complaint over the paper's disclosure of information to law enforcement that the employees believe compromised sources. The employees have approached the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) to assist them and to hire Sir Geoffrey Robertson, the noted barrister, to represent them. The reporters assert that the disclosures resulted in the arrest of Sun journalists earlier this year. Sir Geoffrey has written that journalists must "fight for their rights" in the wake of the internal inquiry.
