Jasmin Djaba and (1) West London Mental Health Trust (2) Secretary of State for Justice - Supreme Court, – [2018] MHLR 104

Point: Whilst permission to appeal was not granted on the question of whether the Tribunal hearing the case of a restricted patient should consider proportionality arguments resting on arts 5 and 8 ECHR or simply apply the statutory criteria in ss72/73 Mental Health Act 1983, it was noted that stringent conditions of detention might be raised under Arts 3 and 8 ECHR.
