Mason v Ministry of Justice [2008] EWHC 1787 (QB); [2008] WLR (D) 265

“The discretion to release a prisoner on home detention curfew could lawfully be exercised by the executive. An individual’s right under art 5(4) of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, to take proceedings by which the lawfulness of his detention could be decided, was adequately protected by the possibility of review of decisions of the executive on general public law principles.”
