Sentence Custodial sentence. Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court (London): The decision of the Secretary of State to recall the prisoner on licence was not irrational given that it could not be said that the prisoner posed no risk to members of the public. The fact that there was no link between the index offence and the offence for which the prisoner was recalled was irrelevant and was not in breach of the prisoner's rights under art 5(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
