Mr Justice Sullivan has quashed the government's control orders against six men suspected of terrorism, stating that such orders are incompatible with article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.
I heard on BBC2 Newsnight a short while ago that Home Secretary Dr John Reid plans to appeal the judgement.
For my part I find it heartening that a brave judge has been prepared to stand up to our dictatorial government by insisting that laws protecting our liberty are observed. If the six men are truly dangerous then they should be charged and evidence placed before a court so they can be tried and judged - if they are found guilty they can then be convicted and sentenced. It is unacceptable for the government to seek to subvert our own laws.
