Archbishop in police state warning

John Sentamu"If you detain people, you must have good enough reason for detaining them and have a chance for there being a successful prosecution. The Home Secretary has not produced the evidence that shows that in 90 days you're capable of getting somebody prosecuted.

"Why does he want these days, so the police do what? Gather more evidence? To me that becomes, if you're not very careful, very close to a police state in which they pick you up and then they say later on we'll find evidence against you. That's what happened in Uganda with Idi Amin." —Archbishop John Sentamu, who fled Uganda during the 1970s
