Drop charges against arrested welfare rights representative, campaigners say

Case could have far reaching consequences for welfare rights advocacy, campaigners say

SUWN, a welfare rights campaigning and advocacy group, say the charges against Cox could have far reaching consequences for "the right of welfare groups to conduct their work."
