India: Briefing on the Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance

, N° d'index: ASA 20/049/2001

This report looks at the Prevention of Terrorism Ordinance, approved on 15 October 2001 by the Government of India, which gives Indian police sweeping powers of arrest and detention. The report's concerns are that several provisions of the draft legislation violate international human rights standards and if enacted, the Ordinance will facilitate violations of numerous rights which the Government of India is obligated to safeguard.
