Section 99. General provisions on the use of coercive measures

A coercive measure may only be used when there is sufficient reason to do so. A coercive measure may not be used when doing so would constitute a disproportionate intervention in light of the nature of the case and other circumstances.
Coercive measures to ensure the implementation of an administrative decision may be applied when an administrative decision has been made that requires a foreign national to leave the realm, and during the processing of a case which may lead to such an administrative decision.
