Ahmed, Regina (on the Application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: Admn 4 May 2006

The applicant had been released from prison on licence, but was subject to the use of an electronic tag, because his offence had been one of violence. The tag was removed and the applicant made himself scarce. His licence was revoked. His solicitors made representations about this, but his request was not to be dealt with unless he surrendered, which he did. It was decided that there was no evidence that the tag had not itself failed as stated by the applicant, but the applicant still wished to argue that the revocation scheme was unlawful.
Held: In fact the claim had become academic, and the court declined to hear the case in full.
