Reporting restrictions were to be maintained as a departure from open justice was strictly necessary given the evidence


Re: Guardian News & Media Ltd & Ors v Incedal [2016] EWCA Crim 11

Challenge to the order made by Nicol J dismissing the appellants’ application to have reporting restrictions which applied during the trial of Erol Incedal varied, so as to permit the publication of reports on the hearings held in private, which certain accredited journalists had been permitted to attend.

Anthony Hudson QC and Ben Silverstone were involved in this case.
