Young offender’s solitary confinement breached rules and ECHR, art 8


Re: AB v SSJ [2017] EWHC 1694 (Admin)

Held, Youth Offender Institute rules on removal from association and on the provision of education were breached. ECHR, art 3 however was not breached. Art 8 was breached because the interference with the claimant’s rights was not in accordance with the law.

Dan Squires QC and Sarah Hannett were involved in this case.
