The Human Rights Act 1998 s.6 did not prevent a court from admitting evidence obtained in breach of the right to private life under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.8. The court's obligation was confined to deciding whether, having regard to the way in which the evidence was obtained, it would be fair to admit it.
