The Administrative Court held that the parole board had acted irrationally in deciding not to allow the claimant - a long-serving lifer whose tariff had expired at the relevant date - to be transferred to open conditions or immediately released, despite evidence from experts who had recommended that at least one of those two courses of action was to be adopted.
