Parliament Rejects Govt’s Motion to Renew Detention Without Trial SOSMA Provision

Yesterday, Parliament voted down a motion to extend the enforcement period for a provision under the Security Offences (Special Measures) 2012 Act (Sosma). The provision, namely Section 4(5) of SOSMA is an important one, which allows for detention without trial for up to 28 days. This provision must be renewed by parliament every five years to remain valid. However, yesterday in a news that has been celebrated by progressives and human rights defenders across the country, the motion to renew the provision was voted down 86-84. But what does this mean exactly? Sevan Doraisamy of SUARAM joins us to discuss.
