A lawyer for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has claimed that she was stopped at a British airport, and was told that she was on a secret watch-list.
Australian Jennifer Robinson said told by a Heathrow airport official that she was on an 'inhibited person list' that means she must have 'done something controversial'.
Robinson was told that required special clearance before she could board her plane.
"This incident raises so many questions. Why would I need clearance to travel to my own country? So far I have not had a proper explanation," the Daily Mail quoted her, as saying.
Robinson stressed that under Australian law, a citizen does not need special clearance when returning to their own country, regardless of whether they are on any watch-lists.
The human rights lawyer is a member of Assange's legal team, which has been fighting his extradition to Sweden on alleged sexual assault offences.
She was also his legal adviser when WikiLeaks published US military documents as well as diplomatic cables from American embassies.
