The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Theresa May):

Section 19(1) of the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures Act 2011 (the Act) requires the Secretary of State to report to Parliament as soon as reasonably practicable after the end of every relevant three-month period on the exercise of her TPIM powers under the Act during that period.

The level of information provided will always be subject to slight variations based on operational advice.

TPIM notices in respect of British citizens (as of 30 November 2013) 8
TPIM notices extended (during the reporting period) 0
TPIM notices revoked (during the reporting period) 1
TPIM notices revived (during the reporting period) 0
Variations made to measures specified in TPIM notices (during the reporting period) 0

During the reporting period: one individual was charged in relation to an offence under section 23 of the Act (contravening a measure specified in a TPIM notice without reasonable excuse) and his TPIM notice was revoked upon the subject’s remand in custody.

As Parliament is aware, one individual subject to a TPIM notice (Mohammed Ahmed Mohamed) absconded on 1 November 2013.

Section 16 of the Act provides rights of appeal in relation to decisions taken by the Secretary of State under the Act. One appeal was lodged under section 16 during the reporting period. No judgments were handed down by the High Court in relation to appeals under section 16 of the Act.

The TPIM Review Group (TRG) keeps every TPIM notice under regular and formal review. The TRG has met twice during this reporting period.
