A restraining order that prohibited indefinitely an offender from publishing any information about the complainant or his fiancee, whether true or not, was not in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.10. Where the offender clearly had difficulty distinguishing between that which was true and that which was false, and it was clear that she was willing to go to extraordinary means to harass the complainant, such an order pursued lawful means to further a legitimate aim and was necessary and proportionate.

[2005] EWCA Crim 3472
