Judge quashes control orders against two British terrorism suspects

Two British terrorism suspects have had their control orders quashed by Lord Justice Maurice Kay after expert witnesses investigating the case found there was an abuse of process involving there alleged illegal removal from Somaliland by British forces where they were allegedly beaten.
In the appeal case Mohammed and CF v Home secretary (2014) EWCA CIV 559 Lord  Justice Kay said that the defendants had been denied “procedural fairness on the issue” and it is not simply a matter of the Home Office hoisting the “neither confirm or deny flag” and the court automatically saluting it. “Where statute does not delineate the boundaries of open justice, it is for the court to do so.”
