Hugh Jordan v the United Kingdom

Pearce Jordan's case was heard by the European Court of Human Rights along with three similar cases. The Court agreed that his death was in violation of Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights, a section of which reads: "Everyone's right to life shall be protected by law. No one shall be deprived of his life intentionally save in the execution of a sentence of a court following his conviction of a crime for which this penalty is provided by law."
