G v HM Treasury; A and others v Same [2008] EWCA Civ 1187; [2008] WLR (D) 339

“The Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 was lawful and validly made under s 1 of the United Nations Act 1946 provided certain words were severed from art 4(2) so that it required the Treasury to show that it had reasonable grounds for suspecting that the person designated was involved in committing or facilitating terrorism and not merely might be such a person. The Al-Qaida and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 was also valid and lawful so long as the designated individual was entitled to a merits based review of his case.”
