Bill of Rights violated in 'Daktory 4' case
The Police Complaints Authority has become involved in the ongoing police operation against the Daktory.
Police continue to target the cannabis law reform centre a week after it was raided on March 22.
The PCA complaints come a day after the district court ruled that three of the "Daktory 4" had been subject to bail conditions which violated the Bill of Rights.
Two separate District Court judges ruled that bail conditions allowing Police to search the Daktory at any time, without a warrant, violated the right not to be subject to unreasonable search in the Bill of Rights.
However, on March 29 two police cars and a paddy wagon waited around the corner from the club, pulling over cars leaving the area. All passengers in the vehicles were made to give their details to police.
Three separate complaints have been made to the Police Complaints Authority relating to the police targeting of club members.
Despite being raided, the Daktory continues to operate as a cannabis law reform centre for NORML members.
