Notification requirements against defendant under the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008 rejected


Re: Police of the Metropolis v Ahsan [2015] EWHC 2354 (Admin)

Application by the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis for an order to impose notification requirements for a period of 15 years on the defendant. This is the first case in which a notification order has been contested in respect of a person convicted outside the UK of a corresponding foreign office. The case raises a number of issues regarding the interpretation of the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008.

Dan Squires QC was involved in this case.
