Regina (King) v Secretary of State for Justice [2010] EWHC 2522 (Admin); [2010] WLR (D) 258

“The discretion of a prison governor to decide the extent of an inmate’s basic association with his fellows did not remove from association its quality as a personal right, a right which was subject to the lawful exercise of discretion by the governor. Within the autonomous meaning afforded to civil rights by the European Court of Human Rights, a prisoner’s residual right of association was a ‘civil right’ within art 6(1) of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.”
