Practice and Procedure

R. (on the application of HEADLEY) v PAROLE BOARD FOR ENGLAND & WALES (2009)

PUBLISHED February 12, 2009

[2009] EWHC 663 (Admin)

The decision of a Parole Board not to release a prisoner on licence was vitiated by its failure to afford the prisoner an opportunity to test, by cross-examination, hearsay evidence as to the alleged incident that led to the prisoner's recall on licence.
