Re C (A Child) No. 3 (Application for dismissal or withdrawal of proceedings)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. To allow the local authority's application to withdraw the care proceedings following information received from SO15 (the Counter Terrorism Command, a Special Operations branch within London's Metropolitan Police Service) and HM Passport Office suggesting that the father was an Islamist extremist, would be to deny the child justice. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, accordingly dismissed the authority's application.
