Court reluctant to substitute own view for that of decision maker in OSJA assessment


Re: R (Nour) v Secretary of State for Defence [2015] EWHC 2695 (Admin)

Whether the defendant had failed to carry out proper assessments in relation to assistance and training provided to the Sudanese armed forces. Considers the ambit of the Court’s powers of review where an assessment is made under the ‘Overseas Security and Justice Assistance Human Rights Guidance’.

Dan Squires QC and Tamara Jaber were involved in this case.
