question related to part-3 article 22(1)


Part-3 article 22(1) says-

22. (1) No person who is arrested shall be detained in custody without being informed, as soon as may be, of the grounds for such arrest nor shall he be denied the right to consult, and to be defended by, a legal practitioner of his choice. 

May someone here clarify how soon should the person be informed of reason for detention ? The article only says " as soon as may be". I do not understand what that exactly means ?

If the police/officer stop a person on a journey, would the person has the right to leave, if the police or officer cannot provide any cause with in a specific timeframe ? What legal grounds the person in this scenario have ?

If this person in journey is detained for timeframe where (s)he miss his transportation leading to his loss of journey and business, what legal ground does this person have, as the article say "as soon as may be" ?
