Delay by LAA in assessment of an offender’s disposable capital in relation to the issuing of a capital contributions order did not render the order unfair

A delay by the legal aid agency in the assessment of an offender’s disposable capital in relation to the issuing of a capital contributions order did not render the order unfair. Recovery of the costs of legal aid, reassessed after the lifting of a restraint order, was a proportionate interference with the offender’s right to peaceful enjoyment of his possessions under ECHR, art 1 of protocol 1.

Nick Armstrong was involved in this case.
