PUBLISHED April 7, 2009

[2009] EWHC 768 (Admin)

It was not unreasonable for the secretary of state to have retained a prisoner in closed conditions in order to carry out psychological work that was recommended by the Parole Board and which was necessary to enable it to make a decision as to whether the prisoner's ongoing detention was necessary for the protection of the public.
