R (on the application of Bate) v Parole Board of England and Wales

Prison – Release on licence. The claimant was entitled to recover damages for the breach of his rights under art 5(4) of the European Convention on Human Rights and delayed liberty between 1 November 2016 and 22 March 2017, as the interval between Parole Board hearings had not been reasonable. Accordingly, the Divisional Court allowed the claimant's application for judicial review.
