R (on the application of Cunliffe) v Secretary Of State For Justice

Sentence – Mandatory life sentence. The Divisional Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's acceptance of the judge's determination that his tariff should not be reduced. Although a victim personal statement should not have been considered by the judge if its author had been unwilling to have it disclosed to the claimant, the judge's decision had been inevitable.
