X v Secretary of State for Home Department - Challenge to Sex Offenders Registration Rules
March 7, 2013
It has been confirmed that a challenge to the requirement of convicted Sex Offenders to provide details of their bank accounts and credit cards will be heard by the Administrative Court at Birmingham on 9th July 2013.
The challenge is brought on the back of the Governments own impact assessment to the 2012 amendment rules which arguably offers little support for a blanket policy requiring the provision of these private records and effectively amounts to a clear breach of Article 8 - Right to a private life .
X anonymised on the order of the Court is represented by Mark Newby and Matthew Stanbury ( Counsel ) of Garden Court North Chambers Manchester .
This is the same team that was the only one to win against the Secretary of State for Justice in the miscarriage of justice compensation claims ( Lawless )
