Regina v. Secretary of State for the Home Department (Respondent) ex parte Amin (FC) (Appellant)
This judgement strengthens the European Court of Human Rights decision in the cases of Jordan, Kelly & Ors, Shanaghan and McKerr v. UK. In Amin, the House of Lords held that the standards laid down by the European Court in Jordan et al set minimum standards that a state must meet to be Article 2 compliant. Thus, the Amin decision brings these standards into domestic law.
