Terrorism-related arrests rise by 60%

Terrorism-related arrests rise by 60% 13 Dec 2012 Official figures show that arrests for suspected terrorism offences rose by 60% in the last year, but that a new stop and search power granted to officers was not used once. The new power under section 47a of the Terrorism Act 2000 came into effect in March 2011, as a replacement for a previous stop and search power which was seen as too random and was struck down by the courts. Previously section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 allowed searches to be carried out without reasonable suspicion.
