Isherwood v New Zealand
United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention 
  • 7 September 2016
  • A/HRC/WGAD/2016/32

The Working Group notes that the period of preventive detention, if genuinely aimed at the detainee’s rehabilitation and reintegration into society, is not punitive and is intended to protect society, in particular young women… the Working Group finds that there has been no violation of the principle of legality in Mr. Isherwood’s case.
