Termination of visits

104 Termination of visits

(1) An authorised officer may terminate any visit (whether or not the visitor is entitled to make the visit) if of the opinion--
(a) that the visitor has contravened any provision of the Act or this Regulation, or
(b) that the visitor, or inmate being visited by the visitor, is or has been acting in a threatening, offensive, indecent, obscene, abusive or improper way, or
(c) that the continuation of the visit would prejudice the good order and security of the correctional centre, or
(d) that it is in the interests of the visitor, being a visitor who is under the age of 18 years, to terminate the visit.
Note : For example, the Commissioner may terminate a visit by a child who is visiting an inmate convicted of a sexual offence if the Commissioner is of the opinion that it is necessary for the protection of the child.
(2) If a visit is terminated under this clause, the authorised officer must ensure notice of that fact is given to the governor.
(3) The governor must ensure a copy of the notice is sent to the Commissioner.
(4) A person whose visit is terminated under this clause may be removed from the correctional centre if he or she fails to leave when requested.
