Immigration Detention. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in upholding the judge's findings that the appellants' detention had not been unlawful, held that the judge had not erred in his construction of the respondent Secretary of State's guidance as to the detention of HIV+ persons, that there was no basis of claim under the European Convention on Human Rights on the ground that the Secretary of State had not adopted the British HIV Association's advice and the detentions had not been unlawful due to the standard of medical treatment received.
