Pal v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis

Appeal – Evidence. The appellant's appeal against the decision of the County Court at Central London to dismiss her claim for damages and declaratory relief, arising out of her arrest, charge and prosecution for an offence of harassment pursuant to section 2 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, was dismissed. The Queens' Bench Division found that the judge had been entitled to find on the evidence that the appellant's arrest had been lawful. There had been no arguable breach of the appellant's Article 10 ECHR rights when she had been arrested, nor had there been any actionable assault.
