ABSENCE OF LEGAL POWER TO LIFT OFFENDER’S NOTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

Despite a substantial delay in applying for judicial review, it was in the public interest to quash a court’s decision purporting to lift a sexual offender’s notification requirements. The court lacked power to make that order, and the grant of relief upheld the rule of law and ensured that all applications to life notification requirements were dealt with under the same procedure.
