R (on the application of da Silva and others) v Mitting (sitting as chairman of the Undercover Policing Inquiry)

Police – Enquiry. The claimants, who were core participants in an Undercover Policing Inquiry set up following the findings of the Stephen Lawrence Independent Review, were refused permission to judicially review a ruling to grant restriction orders under s 19 of the Inquiries Act 2005. The restriction orders prohibited disclosure of the 'cover names' of 10 former undercover police officers. The Administrative Court held that all the points raised by the claimants were unarguable.
