ACTIONS THAT JEOPARDISE OBJECTIVES OF SUPERVISION

Art.5 European Convention on Human Rights applied to the recall and detention procedures under the Criminal Justice Act 1991 for breach of an extended licence, since that Article was not satisfied by the original sentence of the court. Recall was not justifiable where the alleged risk of re-offending related to offences that were not of a similar nature to the triggering offence. In deciding whether to confirm a recall decision, the Parole Board was entitled to rely on hearsay evidence.
