Repeal Section 44 (Terrorism Act 2000)

Comment 21st November 2014

Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 gives wide-ranging stop-and-search powers to the Police without requiring prior reason, these are used frequently to stop photographers, campers, members of parliament, cricketers and BBC staff from undertaking their normal day-to-day activities:

Why does this matter?

Section 44 powers have been deemed illegal by the European Court of Human Rights;  they should now be repealed.
