Repeal all terrorism acts from 2001 onwards in their entirety II

Comment 26th July 2010

Repeal the following acts completely: Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, Criminal Justice Act 2003, Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, Terrorism Act 2006, Counter-Terrorism Act 2008, Coroners and Justice Act 2009.

There may be a very small number of specific provisions worth saving from these acts, such as the repeal of the offences of sedition and obscene libel in the 2009 Coroners and Justice Act. These are very few in number and can be incorporated into a new bill, subject to fresh parliamentary scrutiny and approval. However, rather than try to tamper with the aforementioned bills, they are best scrapped in their entirety, as there is almost nothing of value in any of them.

Why does this matter?

No state should keep a DNA database of its free citizens. This is a massive erosion of a citizen's right to privacy.  Whilst it is a good idea to keep track of violent offenders until the record of their offense has expired it is wrong and unlawful to store DNA records of those citizens who have no convictions.
