AL v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Terrorism – Prevention of. In having upheld the respondent Secretary of State's decision to impose a control order on the appellant in 2006, the judge had correctly set out both the question he had to decide and the approach he should adopt. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appellant's appeal against that decision, further held that the judge had not simply been adopting previous findings or using them as a starting point and his findings had been his own based on a careful analysis of all the evidence available before him.
