Detention in the Ma Tau Kok Detention Centre

We're waiting for Preston to read a recent response and update the status.

Director of Immigration,

I refer to the following request.

https://accessinfo.hk/zh_HK/request/crit...

You replied that the Ma Tau Kok Detention Centre is an immigration facility for short-term
detention of immigration offenders pending inquiry, prosecution, court hearing, transfer to other detention facilities etc.

How do you define "short-term detention"? Is there any detention limit in the Ma Tau Kok Detention Centre? Is it lawful to detain non-refoulement claimants in the Ma Tau Kok Detention Centre? Any case before?

Preston
