Snowden documentary filmmaker sues US over years of harassment
"Freedom of Speech" in USA
Oscar-winning film director Laura Poitras is suing the US government to find out why she has been searched, questioned and subjected to enhanced security screenings over the past six years, being stopped over 90 times during the course of her travels.
“I am filing this lawsuit because the government uses the US border to bypass the rule of law,” said Poitras in a statement. “This simply should not be tolerated in a democracy.”
