Blum v DPP

[2006] EWHC 3209

Judgement for the case Blum v DPP

Some people were convicted of taking part in an unauthorised protest. They accepted that the requirement for authorisation was not incompatible with ECHR article 11 but said that the conduct of the protest, once it began, should be considered. Divisional court said authorities on reasonableness of ending protests were concerned with authorised protests and, given that the appellants accept the lawfulness of s.132 (above) and its convention compliance, the police were entitled to arrest the appellants and end the protest.
