Tabbakh, Regina (on The Application of) v The Staffordshire and West Midlands Probation Trust and Another: Admn 9 Aug 2013

The claimant challenged the attaching additional licence conditions on his release from prison. He is serving the non-custodial part of a seven year sentence imposed for an offence of preparing a terrorist act. He was released automatically on licence on 23 June 2011, having served half his sentence. The claimant contends that he had no meaningful opportunity to participate in the process when his licence conditions were determined and that this constitutes a breach of the procedural guarantees under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
