Does History Repeat?

The following is from the newspaper article "A test of Russia's rule under
law--Kafkaesque problems can still be found" by BJ Cutler

"President Boris Yeltsin of Russia often speaks of his ambition to make his
vast land a normal country, one governed by the rule of law and not the whim
of the police."
[talking about Mirzayanov and two fellow scientists]: "The three became
whistleblowers, disclosing what the knew in articles"
[M] "was charged with disclosing state secrets" [and jailed]
[M was able to retain a lawyer named Asnis]

"Asnis tried to visit his client in prison but was refused. Why? Because the
defendant possessed state secrets.
The lawyer then asked to see the secret section of the law [M] is alleged to
have broken. Again a refusal. Why? You do not have security clearance and
cannot be permitted to read that part of the law."

Is anything similar  happening  to H. (Hawes that is)?
