DD v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Terrorism – Prevention of. The appellant appealed against the revival of his terrorism prevention and investigation measure and the respondent Secretary of State's decision to extend it. The Administrative Court held that the requirement that the appellant wear an electronic monitoring tag was such that there was a breach of art 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Further, restrictions on the use of electronic communications had become disproportionate due to the serious effect on the appellant's children. Accordingly, the monitoring measures would be quashed and the electronic communication measures would be varied, but the other measures could remain as they were.
