Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of GEOFFREY AUSTIN) v PAROLE BOARD (2011)

PUBLISHED August 12, 2011

[2011] EWHC 2384 (Admin)

A Parole Board had been entitled to refuse to recommend the transfer of a prisoner serving a life sentence for murder to open prison conditions. It had correctly applied the Parole Board Directions and had not taken undue account of the prisoner's continued denial of guilt.
