Jones (Appellant) v Birmingham City Council and another (Respondents)

Case ID: 2021/0087

Case summary

Issue

Whether Part 4 of the Policing and Crime Act 2009 is incompatible with Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Facts

In 2016, HHJ McKenna granted an interim injunction preventing Mr Jones from entering a large part of central Birmingham, save for exceptional circumstances, on account of his alleged involvement in gang-related activities. This order was appealed to the High Court as being incompatible with Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees an individual’s right to a fair trial. The High Court found there was no incompatibility. The Appellant appealed to the Court of Appeal. The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal. The Appellant now seeks permission to appeal to the Supreme Court.
