The secretary of state's management and treatment of those prisoners sentenced under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.225 to imprisonment for public protection for an indeterminate period was not lawful, as the continuing incarceration of such prisoners following the expiry of their tariffs without any effective assessment of the danger they did or did not pose could not be justified.
