I personally would like to say that I couldn't believe that this was could happen, but I can't. These sorts of laws have been drafted and voted in time and time again in the UK. This particular one holds the probability that even if you're found innocent, by the time the 42 days is up, chances are, everything you've ever had will be gone — job, home, family.

Oh there is talk of compensation packages available for the falsely accused, chances of you getting that money however is slim to none, lets not forget, this is the same country that charges prisoners, who have been falsely accused for bed and boarding costs.
