Short Update: Netherlands reportedly considering relaxing limits on length of pre-trial detention

FairTrialsAdmin - March 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Pre-trial detention

 

Amid indefinite postponement of court proceedings in the Netherlands, Dutch authorities are reportedly considering relaxing the rules around how long suspects can spend in pre-trial detention. If instituted, this would double the number of days that people can be detained before seeing a judge from 6 to 12, and double how long they can be detained while their cases are investigated from 12 to 24 days.
