The Prevention of Terrorism Bill 2015 (Pota) contains provisions for indefinite detention without trial that cannot be challenged in court.

Suspects can be initially detained for up to 59 days before the matter is brought before the Prevention of Terrorism Board, which can then impose a maximum two years detention period.

Following this, the detention period can be renewed.
