*Ireland v United Kingdom (App. No. 5310/71)

Human rights – Infringement of human rights. Even if documents submitted by Ireland in support of its first ground for revision of an original judgment demonstrated the fact alleged, it could not be said that it might have had a decisive influence on the finding in the original judgment that the use of five techniques of interrogation did not constitute torture. The European Court of Human Rights, in rejecting the request for revision, further held that the documents submitted in support of the second ground for revision did not demonstrate facts that had been unknown to the Court when the original judgment had been delivered.
