R (on the application of S) (Claimant) v CHIEF CONSTABLE OF WEST MERCIA (Defendant) & CRIMINAL RECORDS BUREAU (Interested Party_ (2008)

PUBLISHED November 18, 2008

[2008] EWHC 2811 (Admin)

Details of offences with which an individual had been charged, but acquitted, were wrongfully included in his enhanced criminal record certificate as, in deciding to disclose those details, the decision-maker failed to have regard to the reasons for the acquittal and it was irrational or unreasonable to conclude that he had committed the offences.
