[2004] EWCA Civ 1123

It would be contrary to the exercise of the statutory power and unrealistic to expect the home secretary to investigate each statement relied on to issue a certificate under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 s.21 with a view to deciding whether circumstances in which the statement was obtained involved torture, thereby breaching European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.3.
