R (McKilligan) v Parole Board for England and Wales



[2024] EWHC 336 (Admin)

Olivia successfully represented the Claimant in this challenge to the Parole Board’s decision to refuse an oral hearing.

The Parole Board’s decision was found to be unreasonable and irrational and was therefore quashed, and an oral hearing directed. There are some interesting points in the judgment regarding the Claimant’s stagnation within the system and the need for a proper review of risk, failure to properly apply Osborn, and an unlawful dossier underpinning the decision as per the case of Bailey and Morris.

Olivia was instructed by Scott Laing at Bhatia Best Solicitors
