NotesNews : The former MI5 officer David Shayler was locked up in a Paris jail last night awaiting extradition hearings after the Government dramatically raised the stakes in its attempt to prevent him from making further disclosures about the activities of Britain's security and intelligence services. The extraordinary series of events unfurled as the Government confirmed that John Morris, the Attorney General had taken the highly risky decision to prosecute Mr Shayler for alleged breaches of the Official Secrets Act.
