UKHL 50
The court examined and clarified the power to extend a period of detention under the Terrorism Act 2000 Sch.8 para.31 to para. 34 and para.36. The process was subject to a carefully constructed timetable and carefully constructed safeguards. In the instant case, the judge had not abused the power conferred by para.33(3) in excluding the detained person from court while establishing whether the test for an extension had been met.
