Knights and another v Parole Board of England & Wales and another

Sentence – Imprisonment. The claimant prisoners serving sentences of imprisonment for public protection issued proceedings, contending that their detention breached arts 3, 5 and 14 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Administrative Court held that there had been unacceptable delay in holding the review in the second claimant's case and that had been a breach of art 5(4) of the Convention for which he would be awarded £300 damages. However, the claimants' other claims were dismissed.
