EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

This Order continues in force for a period of one year, beginning with 14th March 2003, sections 21 to 23 of the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, which would otherwise expire on 13th March 2003 pursuant to section 29(1) of that Act.

These provisions enable a person in respect of whom the Secretary of State issues a certificate under section 21 (a “suspected international terrorist”) to be detained under the Immigration Act 1971 despite the fact that the person's removal from the United Kingdom is prevented by a point of law relating to an international agreement or a practical consideration.
