Kingsley v United Kingdom, ECtHR Judgment 2000

[2002] 35 EHRR 10

Case summary last updated at 07/01/2020 12:33 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Kingsley v United Kingdom, ECtHR Judgment 2000

 The Gaming Board had refused P’s licence application and he applied for judicial review to the court that the board was biased. The court agreed but said that the decision couldn’t be overturned since the board was the only tribunal/court with the jurisdiction to make a decision and hence judicial review couldn’t operate (CA said the same thing). ECtHR said that this breached P’s right to a fair trial by an independent and impartial tribunal, and the “full jurisdiction” mentioned as being necessary for the courts in article 6 ECHR was not present where the courts were unable to quash decisions and remit them to impartial tribunals.
