Regina (BB (Algeria)) v Special Immigration Appeals Commission and another: [2012] EWCA Civ 1499;   [2012] WLR (D)  334

“The decision to deport an individual and the grant of conditional bail pending deportation did not involve a determination of civil rights within the meaning of article 6 of the Convention for the Protections of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, and accordingly the fair trial provisions in article 6 had no application to that decision. Where bail conditions interfered with an individual’s article 8 rights to protection of private and family life but did not amount to deprivation of liberty, the individual had to be able to make an effective challenge to the decision but was not without more entitled to the disclosure of information relating to the national security case against him.”
