Habeas Corpus

What is Habeas Corpus ?

Habeas Corpus is a writ requiring a person who is illegally or unlawfully detained to be brought before court to secure release. Habeas Corpus is a Latin term which literally means “produce the body (in court)”. The history of habeas corpus seems to have been established as a process for checking illegal imprisonment of people by inferior courts or public officials.
