R(Nicklinson) v MoJ; R(AM) v DPP [2012] EWHC 2381 (Admin). It was for Parliament to decide whether to change the law on voluntary euthanasia and the court could not alter the common law to create a defence to murder by way of necessity in the case of voluntary euthanasia. As the House of Lords and the European Court of Human Rights had ruled that a blanket ban on assisted suicide was not incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights art.8 the same had to apply to voluntary euthanasia.

SHAKER AAMER v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN & COMMONWEALTH AFFAIRS (2009)

Where a Guantanamo Bay detainee sought disclosure of certain documents from the secretary of state under the Norwich Pharmacal principles to support his case before a review task force that any confessions he might have made during his detention had been induced by torture or ill-treatment, it was necessary to grant the relief as the interests at stake in the determination of the task force were so high and the potential consequences to the detainee so grave that nothing less than the opportunity to make reasoned submissions as to the significance of the information the documents contained could be considered sufficient.
Angus McCullough QC

 

 

 

SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Appellant) v (1) AF (2) AM (3) AN (Respondents) : AE (Appellant) v SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Respondent) & JUSTICE (Intervener) (2009)

A person subject to a non-derogating control order had to be given sufficient information about the allegations against him to enable him to give effective instructions in relation to those allegations. Where the open material relied on consisted purely of general assertions and the case against the "controlee" was based solely or to a decisive degree on closed materials, the requirements of a fair trial would not be satisfied, however cogent the case based on the closed materials might be.
