The Home Office is planning to set up "stop and search zones" across Northern Ireland's southern frontier in a move that critics claim would lead to the "hardest of hard borders" after Brexit. The government's Counter Terrorism and Border Security Bill will introduce the anti-terror checks “within one mile of the Northern Ireland land border,” including train stations connecting the north and south. Under the proposals, police and border officials could “stop, search and detain” any person near the northern side of the border suspected of planning “hostile activity.” But the Committee on the Administration of Justice (CAJ), a human rights group in Belfast, says the checks would undermine the...
