Proceeds of Crime Act 2002

Terrorism Act 2000 (c.11)

682.The Act makes certain amendments to Schedule 8 to the Terrorism Act 2000, which is concerned with the rights of persons detained under section 41 of, or Schedule 7 to, that Act (i.e. persons arrested or detained as suspected terrorists under anti-terrorism powers). The amendments in question run in parallel with those made to sections 56 and 58 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, as described above. Their basic effect, like the amendments of the 1984 Act, is to enable the exercise of an arrested or detained person’s rights to be delayed in certain circumstances where this might result in the dissipation of a person’s benefit from crime.
