ADMISSIBILITY OF EVIDENCE OBTAINED IN BREACH OF CONVENTION RIGHTS

[2005] EWCA Crim 516 [2005] EWCA Crim 516

The Human Rights Act 1998 s.6 did not prevent a court from admitting evidence obtained in breach of the right to private life under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 Art.8 . The court’s obligation was confined to deciding whether, having regard to the way in which the evidence was obtained, it would be fair to admit it.
