Sherif and Others, Regina v: CACD 21 Nov 2008

The defendants sought to appeal against their sentences for withholding information about terrorism.
Held: The factor determing the sentence was not principally the extent of the information which might have been provided, but rather the seriousness of the terrorist activity. Time which had been spent awaiting trial subject to a curfew enforced by means of an electronic tag was to be given credit against time to be served at the rate of one day’s custody for each two day period of curfew.
