United Kingdom: The Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill 2011: Control orders redux
The Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Bill (TPIMB) was published by the UK government on 23 May 2011. If enacted, the Bill will replace a system of supposedly temporary powers to order restrictions on the activities of individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism-related activity, that had been created by the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005 (PTA). Amnesty International considers that the proposed TPIMB reforms to the control order system fundamentally fail to address the manner in which the control orders regime under the PTA falls short of international human rights standards.
