[2012] EWHC 358 (Admin)

Under Italian law, the system of detaining individuals in order to conduct a preliminary investigation into criminal allegations against them, before deciding whether to proceed to trial, would not, in the instant case, breach the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.5 even if there was a delay of more than three months before the final decision was made as to whether to prosecute.
