  •  (1) Subject to section 93, the institutional head or a staff member designated by the institutional head may authorize the refusal or suspension of a visit to an inmate where the institutional head or staff member believes on reasonable grounds

      • (ii) plan or commit a criminal offence; and

    • (b) that restrictions on the manner in which the visit takes place would not be adequate to control the risk.

    • (a) the refusal or suspension may continue for as long as the risk referred to in that subsection continues; and

    • (b) the institutional head or staff member shall promptly inform the inmate and the visitor of the reasons for the refusal or suspension and shall give the inmate and the visitor an opportunity to make representations with respect thereto.
