Abolish Control orders

Comment 26th July 2010

Control orders are fundamentally undemocratic because they impose what is essentially a punishment without a proper judicial process. and damage the human rights of us all.  The impact on the family is huge with the person subject to the control order finding it difficult to work because of the impact of curfews and reporting restrictions.  Families are restricted by, among other things, being unable to access computers and the internet: this has a particularly detrimental effect on the education of children in the family.  the whole family is stigmatised.  Control orders should be scrapped immediately. 

Why does this matter?

The abolition of control orders is important because they allow for what is in essence detention without trial.  This is contrary to human rights and is damaging to what should be seen as an impartial judicial system.
