*Hassan v United Kingdom (App. No. 29750/09)

Human rights – Right to liberty and security. Following his brother's death after having been detained by United Kingdom armed forces in Iraq, the applicant lodged an application against the UK, alleging, among other things, breaches of art 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The European Court of Human Rights, in dismissing the application, held that, although the brother had fallen within the jurisdiction of the UK, his detention had not been arbitrary and there had been no violation of art 5 of the Convention.
