New detention laws to delay release of Pendennis terror cell leader

UNSW Law's Senior Lecturer Nicola McGarrity speaks to The Point Magazine (August 2016), regarding the proposed extended post-sentence detention for convicted terrorists.

McGarrity said, “Indefinite detention violates the fundamental nature of our laws, ‘you commit the crime and do the time'. Our laws are premised on the idea that we rehabilitate. In the terror context, its seems like we are moving away from this idea, which is a concern."
