Human Rights

Met chief urges longer detention limit
The 28-day limit for holding terrorist suspects without charge is "not sufficient" and should be extended, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police said today.

Sir Ian Blair said the number of plots in the UK was growing and said the detention period should be "somewhere between" 50 and 90 days.

Giving evidence to the home affairs select committee in parliament, Sir Ian admitted that police had not yet required more than four weeks to assemble evidence against a suspect.

But he said: "At some stage 28 days is not going to be sufficient, and the worst time to debate whether an extension is needed would be in the aftermath of an atrocity."
If you have not got anything out of a suspect after 28 days, your not going to get anything else from the suspect if you stretch it to 90 days

god damn the government should know better, they got their arses handed to them last time and it will happen again.
