“The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) is gravely disturbed by news reports of the Police not providing information on citizens who have been arrested/ detained. In order to ensure all citizens are aware of their legal rights, CPA has prepared this short question and answer document. The document explains the rights of those arrested/ detained and of their family members, to obtain information and access to legal representation.”
