Notable case

Al-Khawaja and Tahery v United Kingdom

David Perry QC and Louis Mably represented the United Kingdom in the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights. The case was heard following the refusal of the Supreme Court in England to accept that Strasbourg’s original decision was correct. The issue under consideration was whether the English approach to the use of hearsay evidence in criminal proceedings was compatible with Article 6 of the Convention.
