Pre-trial disclosure issues in claim subjected to closed material procedure direction


Re: R (K, A and B) v Secretary of State for Defence [2016] EWHC 1261 (Admin)

The court was asked to consider various issues relating to pre-trial disclosure in a claim that was subject to a closed material procedure direction under the Justice and Security Act 2013, s 6. The issues arose in relation to litigation brought by three individuals, who claim to have acted for the defendant as covert human intelligence sources in Afghanistan between 2008 and 2013.

Jonathan Glasson QC, Samantha Knights and Tim Owen QC were involved in this case.
