February 2010

Alun Jones QC and Amanda Jones represented the successful Claimants in the case of R (on the application of Bhatti & others) v Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. The Divisional Court held that the entries into, and searches of, the Claimants’ premises were unlawful by reason of a breach of s.16(5)(c) of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. All items seized were to be returned to the Claimants forthwith. The matter has been adjourned to a single judge in the Queen’s Bench Division for assessment of damages.
