Brown calls to extend terror suspects' questioning
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Wednesday called for extending the time limits for detaining terrorist suspects before they have to be charged beyond the current 28 days but did not make a specific proposal.
Brown said another proposed change in the law, to allow police to continue questioning of suspects after they have been charged, would minimize the number of times police would need more than 28 days. The prime minister argued that the complexity of terrorist cases, involving thousands of pieces of evidence, made the current limit unworkable in some cases.
