Three complaints were considered:

1. that the applicant was not provided with sufficient time to arrange legal representation;

2. that the applicant was not cautioned in respect of a number of criminal allegations which he was subsequently questioned on; and

3. that the applicant was told he would be detained if he did not attend voluntarily for an interview, however does not believe there were sufficient grounds to detain him.
