Bill No. 49
Various Laws relating to Police Arrest and Detention (Amendment) Bill Back to List

Fourteenth Legislature (2022 - )

Objects and Reasons

The objects and reasons of this Bill are to provide for the possibility to extend the period of arrest of persons reasonably suspected of having committed serious crimes liable to a maximum punishment exceeding twelve (12) years imprisonment so that the investigators will have more time to obtain and preserve evidence. The Bill provides for a proper balance between the protection of the public and the guarantees of the rights of the suspected person through the concurrent introduction of procedural safeguards before a judicial authority.

Motion No. 117 - Police Process, Arrest and Detention of Suspected Persons (Various Laws) (Amendment) Bill
