[2011] NICA 6

The European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.5(4) did not dictate that a prisoner serving an indeterminate sentence of imprisonment had an absolute right to an oral hearing before the parole board. While such a hearing might be required as a matter of fairness in a particular case, that was a matter of judgment for the board and depended on the circumstances of the case.
