January 12, 2010
The Home Office is set to issue a statement on today’s European ruling that police use of Section 44 stop and search powers is ‘illegal’. The Metropolitan Police have so far declined to comment.
A Home Office spokesman told Amateur Photographer that it plans to release a statement on the matter later today.
The Metropolitan Police declined to comment, instead referring our enquiries to the Home Office.
