Ian Gray v Secretary of State for Justice (1) Parole Board (2)




[2010] EWHC 2 (Admin)

PENOLOGY AND CRIMINOLOGY - CRIMINAL PROCEDURE - HUMAN RIGHTS

The failure of the Parole Board to provide a hearing to determine the continued detention of a prisoner serving a sentence of detention for public protection until over four months after his earliest release date gave rise to a breach of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.5(4). The board had not acted with reasonable despatch and there was no explanation for that inaction and lack of case management.
