Haralambous v St Albans Crown Court and another

Warrant – Search warrant. The Divisional Court held that the common law right to information after the issue of a search warrant did not require sufficient information to be provided to the subject of the warrant to assess its legality against the statutory conditions. That applied to a warrant issued under s 8 of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 and on an application to retain material under s 59 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001.
