Eworho v The Attorney General 1986 BLR 359 (HC)
Author: Jean
Published: Sep 25, 1986

... the power of detention under section 14(1) of the Immigration Act (Cap. 25:04) (1973 Rev.) is limited to such period as may be necessary for the completion of arrangements to remove a person detained from Botswana. In the circumstances of the instant case the court could not hold that detention from the first half of May 1986 to 15 August 1986 was reasonably necessary to make arrangements to effect the removal of the applicant from Botswana. The writ de homine libero exhibendo would therefore issue.
