Corey, Re Judicial Review: CANI 21 Dec 2012

The claimant had been recalled to prison from parole, and challenged his recall, saying that the procedure, being almost entirely based upon closed material infringed his rights to a fair trial. The respondent now appealed against an order finding the Commissioners in breach.
Held: The appeal was allowed. The material provided to the appellant and his advisers was sufficient to allow him to give effective instructions to those representing him. There was therefore no breach of article 5(4) of the Convention.
