York's Archbishop hits back about terriorism laws
4:23pm 28th July 2010
The Archbishop of York has been stopped and searched by police EIGHT times.
Doctor John Sentamu has warned new anti-terrorist powers are a threat to civil liberties and police should not be able to ask for someone's bank accounts to be frozen merely because they are suspected of terrorism.
He's been speaking in the House of Lord on the Terrorist Asset-Freezing Bill.
The Archbishop told peers "the law could lead to people losing their money and property just because their faces did not fit."
