Massey, Regina (on The Application of) v Secretary of State for Justice: Admn 10 Jul 2013

The claimant had been sentenced to an indeterminate sentence for public protection with a tariff period of two years and six months. The tariff expired but he was not released. The Parole Board had twice refused to direct his release or recommend his transfer to open conditions. Timetables had been set for him to complete the Extended Sexual Offender Treatment Programme but, he complained that the defendant has failed to provide the opportunity to satisfy that requirement. He complained of dicrimination because, under the 2012 Act, had he been a foreign national, and therefore subject to deportation on release, he would not have had to face this condition and delay.
