R v SSHD ex p Faulkner [2005] EWHC Admin 2567

DATE: 27 Jan 2005

The Administrative Court held that the SSHD's notification of the statutory basis for detention, without further reason being given, was insufficient either to satisfy the rule in Christie v Leachinsky or Article 5 ECHR and thus held the Claimant's detention to have been unlawful.
