[2013] EWHC 1821 (Admin)

A prison governor who had relied on a flawed RC1 risk assessment form when approving the recategorisation of a prisoner from Category C to open conditions had been entitled to reverse his decision upon learning that the form had omitted to refer to an unsatisfied confiscation order, which meant that the prisoner was at a higher risk of absconding than previously thought. No elaborate reasons for the reversal were needed; it was acceptable simply to explain his view that the existence of the confiscation order was decisive against recategorisation.
