Human rights - Right to respect for private and family life - Low-level historical reprimands
Human rights Right to respect for private and family life. The policy governing the use of criminal records and the disclosure obligation in the (Exceptions) Order 1975, , so far as it concerned low-level historical reprimands, were in violation of art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Divisional Court held that the decision to refuse the claimant employment as a service support officer, solely for a 2007 reprimand, had been unlawful as it had applied the pre-May 2013 law to a post-May 2013 situation and had breached art 8.
