Brit broke anti-terror law by refusing to cough up passwords to cops

Not sure how asking a question warrants a down vote but - OK.

My actual question remains unanswered - regardless of method used or whether it's viable or not - is it legal for them to bypass your security and view information when you refuse to hand over the password?

Seems so for GCHQ with a warrant

Probably not for your typical customs official tho.
