Shaffi v Secretary of State for Justice [2011] EWHC 3113 (Admin)

Fairness – oral hearings – prisoners – re-categorisation

Fairness demanded that a Category “A” prisoner should have an oral hearing in relation to his potential re-categorisation.
28 November 2011
Administrative Court
Eady J
(1) Qaisar Shaffi (S) applied for judicial review of the decision of the Director of High Security not to grant him an oral hearing in relation to his decision not to re-categorise him. S was convicted in 2007 of a terrorist conspiracy to murder and it was determined that he would be Category “A” prisoner. S had behaved well in prison whilst assessments had recommended that there was a low risk of reoffending and should be downgraded from Category “A”. However, the Director had declined to do so and had refused to grant an oral hearing. S argued that fairness demanded an oral hearing.
