Search Warrants - 1990

CM. 25.7.90.

The CCL calls upon the Government to amend the Search Warrants Act to restrict the power to issue search warrants to Magistrates and Judges, and to take it away from any other 'authorised justices'. Further, CCL opposes any extension of search warrant powers beyond those contained in the present Act. CCL reserves its comments on the issue of whether conditions should be attached to search warrants which will be executed by specialised and heavily armed squads of police.
