Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of the COMMISSIONER OF POLICE OF THE METROPOLIS) (Claimant) v POLICE APPEALS TRIBUNAL (Defendant) & BERESFORD CHRISTOPHER PEART (Interested Party) (2011)

PUBLISHED December 16, 2011

[2011] EWHC 3421 (Admin)

The Police Appeals Tribunal had erred when determining the onward progression of an appeal from a misconduct hearing; it had based its initial decision that there should be an oral hearing on a ground of appeal not relied upon by the appellant and had then rescinded its decision and made a redetermination that the appeal should be dismissed without giving the appellant any opportunity to make representations.
