The claimants sought payment of benefits. They would otherwise have been entitled, and were not suspected themselves, but were family members of persons listed as suspected terrorists under the Resolution, and had been denied benefits acordingly. The court was asked whether the payment of social security benefits to families of a person who was listed would be in breach of UN Security Council Resolution.
Held: The respondent had not acted unlawfully in restricting the payment of benefits.
