R (on the application of KHAN) v (1) PAROLE BOARD (2) SECRETARY OF STATE FOR JUSTICE (2009)

PUBLISHED March 6, 2009

[2009] EWHC 756 (Admin)

While the Parole Board and Ministry of Justice had delayed in arranging a review hearing in respect of a prisoner serving an indeterminate sentence of imprisonment for the protection of the public until after the expiry of his tariff sentence, the court was unable to substitute itself for the Parole Board and order his immediate release because, in the circumstances, it was not able to make a proper assessment of whether or not he continued to be dangerous.
