Breaking: The High Court Enters An Injunction in the Belfast Project Case
Posted on September 7, 2012
My impeccable sources have told me that today the High Court in Belfast entered an injunction enjoining the UK authorities from receiving any materials produced by the US government in the Belfast Project case. I understand that the basis of the injunction was Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which covers freedom of expression. The injunction will expire in a week’s time, and I understand that there is to be a hearing on whether it should be extended. I will bring you more on this as I learn it—I cannot, of course, opine on the legal merits of the case under UK or European law.
