Transfers from detention centre to prison or training centre
Caution : This is a past version. See the current version for the latest position.
If a detainee is reported to the Governor by the Commissioner to be-
(a) physically or mentally incapable of full participation in the programme of a detention centre;
(b) exercising a bad influence on the other inmates of the detention centre; or
the Governor may direct-
(i) that such detainee be detained in a training centre; or
(ii) that he be detained in prison for such term as the Governor may, after consultation where practicable with the judge or magistrate who made the detention order, determine, not exceeding the maximum term of imprisonment to which he was liable for the offence of which he was convicted,
and for the purposes of this Ordinance and for the purposes of the Training Centres Ordinance (Cap 280) or the Prisons Ordinance (Cap 234), according to whether such detainee is directed to be detained in a training centre or in prison, he shall be deemed to be a person who, on the day on which the detention order was made against him, had instead been sentenced to detention in a training centre or, as the case may be, to imprisonment for the term so determined by the Governor.
