R v KEOGH (2007)

PUBLISHED March 7, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 528

The reverse burden of proof contained in the Official Secrets Act 1989 s.2(3) and s.3(4) was incompatible with the Human Rights Act 1998 Sch.1 Part I Art.6 as the Act could operate effectively without imposing a reverse burden of proof.
