Pre-Charge Detention

Asked for the Prime Minister’s position on 42 days, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister remained strongly of the view that there was a need to extend the period of pre-charge detention beyond the current 28 days to 42 days, which was the Government’s proposal. We had set out a number of safeguards that we proposed should be put in place in terms of the role of the Judiciary and of Parliament, and the specific detail of that was currently being considered by Parliament as the Bill went through the committee stage.
