Submission + - UK Government Drops 42 Days Without Charge (bbc.co.uk)

jeevesbond writes: "The UK House of Lords has been successful in forcing the government to drop a law that would allow government to hold people without charge for 42 days. The defeat was described by the Conservative MP David Davis as "the biggest defeat in the Lords in living memory". The UK government is also dropping the idea of secret inquests.

The subject of 42 days detention without trial has been discussed on Slashdot before."
