R (on the application of XX) v Secretary of State for the Home Department and others

Child – Protection. The claimant convicted sex offender sought judicial review of the legality of arrangements made by the police for the retention and disclosure of information and data relating to him. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the claimant's rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights were engaged, but the schemes were in accordance with the law because they were not arbitrary or disproportionate and could be justified. Further, the schemes gave full effect to X (South Yorkshire) v Secretary of State for the Home Department ([2012] All ER (D) 232 (Oct)).
