R (on the application of Nkiwane) v Secretary of State for Justice

Compensation – Crime. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's refusal of his claim for compensation for a miscarriage of justice, under s 133 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that it was clear that the Secretary of State's decision to refuse the claimant's claim for compensation had not been vitiated by any public law error and, thus, had not been unlawful on public law grounds.
