Case against the Home Secretary – Panorama & Radio 4

I was instructed to bring a claim against the Home Secretary (then Jack Straw) regarding the negligent release of violent criminals contrary to judge’s recommendation for their deportation.

In the end, the court of public opinion had its say. I was contacted by the press on holiday and gave an interview from a phone box. Panorama ran a feature on this when the same topic cropped up leading to Charles Clarkes’ resignation as Home Secretary. The case illustrates the importance of having a practical solution as well as a legal one even for those at the top of the political ladder.
