NASSAU, BAHAMAS – National Security Minister Wayne Munroe is ripping into a United Nations Report on Arbitrary Detention.

Munroe pointed out that some aspects of the preliminary report are inaccurate. For starters the report notes there is no judicial oversight of detention.

The report was based on interviews conducted with accused individuals.

The report also notes that the evidential threshold to prove that a confession was a result of ill-treatment is high. It also says an accused has to prove they were beaten.

Munroe says the government will provide a report in response to the UN report.

The group made up of three members visited The Bahamas from November 27th to December 9th.

Then there is the concern of people detained for more than five days. It also claimed magistrates do not advise people of their right of appeal, another point Munroe knocked down.
