The Legislation

25B Orders may be made at same time

(1) Nothing in this Act prevents the Supreme Court from making an extended supervision order in respect of a person at the same time that it makes a continuing detention order in respect of the person.

(2) In such a case, despite section 10 (1), the extended supervision order commences on the expiry of the continuing detention order and expires:
(a) at the end of such period (not exceeding 5 years from the day on which it commences) as is specified in the order, or
(b) if the order is suspended for any period, the period specified in paragraph (a) plus each period during which the order is suspended.
