Syed v Secretary of State for Justice

Prison – Prison conditions. The judge had not erred in holding that the claimant serving prisoner's transfer to the managing challenging behaviour strategy unit did not amount to a 'removal from association', within r 45 of the Prison Rules. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the claimant's appeal and the defendant Secretary of State's cross-appeal, further held that the judge had not erred in holding that the restrictions imposed on the claimant in the unit amounted to an interference with his right to respect for private life, under art 8(1) of the European Convention on Human Rights.
