Regina (Carman) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: QBD 30 Jul 2004

The prisoner sought to challenge the terms set for his release on licence.
Held: in this case there were exceptional circumstances to justify an alteration in the terms. The board had not given regard to the actual matters for which the prisoner had been sentenced. However the court made it clear that such challenges should normally be resisted by the courts save in such exceptional cases.
