The Parole Board constituted an independent court within the meaning of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.5(4) notwithstanding its lack of powers to require the production of documents, but the failure to conduct an expeditious review of an offender's detention following his recall on licence had breached his rights under art.5(4).
