11 June, Strasbourg

The European Court of Human Rights will deliver its ruling in the case of Nealon and Hallam v. the United Kingdom at a public hearing (11 am).

The case concerns the rejection of the applicants’ claims for compensation for a miscarriage of justice after their convictions had been quashed when new evidence had undermined the cases against them. The statutory scheme for compensation for miscarriages of justice in the Criminal Justice Act 1988, as amended by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, provides for compensation for a miscarriage of justice only where a new or newly discovered fact shows beyond reasonable doubt that the person concerned did not commit the offence. The applicants argue that the statutory scheme was incompatible with Article 6 § 2 because it required them to “prove” their “innocence” in order to be eligible for compensation.
