Amnesty International regrets that many of the concerns expressed in briefings on the Bills that subsequently became the Terrorism Act 2000; the Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001; the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005; and the Terrorism Act 2006 have needed to be repeated in this document, in relation to the Counter-Terrorism Bill 2008. This briefing highlights only some of the most pressing concerns about the Bill, but does not purport to be an exhaustive analysis.
