Prison Parole Board. Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court (London): The court allowed the claimant's application for judicial review of the parole board's inability to hold a review into his detention in prison 'speedily' as required by art5(4) of the European Convention on Human Rights. The court also stated that it was not now appropriate for any prisoner to take proceedings against the board alleging breaches of art5(4) unless there were very special circumstances, something had gone badly wrong despite the new arrangements in that prisoner's particular case.
