Refusal to notify victims of child restraint arguably unlawful

07.09.11 | |

The children's rights charity CRAE (Children's Rights Alliance for England) has been given permission to challenge the Secretary of State's refusal to notify young people who may have been victims of unlawful restraint in Secure Training Centres of their rights and the ways they can seek redress. Mr Justice Collins held that the case was both arguable and important and made a Protective Costs Order to allow CRAE, a small charity, to pursue the claim. The hearing will now take place before the end of 2011. Richard Hermer QC, Alex Gask and Stephen Broach act for CRAE in these proceedings.
