R v M & 4 ORS (2007)

PUBLISHED February 7, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 298

Compact discs or computer hard drives holding electronic data were capable of being articles within the meaning of the Terrorism Act 2000 s.57 but that section could not be used to sidestep s.58 of the Act as Parliament had clearly laid down different regimes for documents and records under s.58 and articles under s.57.
