Prevent terrorism laws being used for other offences

Comment 9th July 2010

Terrorism laws have been used by authorities for such lesser issues as spying on or prosecuting citizens to check their residence who try to get their children into schools in an adjacent area

There are reports that these laws have been used in connection with such relatively trivial offences as dog fouling in parks.

Why does this matter?

 By allowing or not  properly drawing up these laws government have allowed laws to be used for purposes not intended by Parliament & by state functionaries not whos should for example be providing decent  schools not using terrorism laws to coerce parents to send their children to inadequate schools

By using terrorism laws for such relatively minor offences, these laws can be brought into disrepute & thereby be reduced in effectiveness for their primary purpose.
