[1999] 2 AC 330

Judgement for the case R v CICB, ex parte A

P claimed to have suffered rape in the course of a burglary and assault but crucial medical evidence was omitted at the hearing and hence the board did not compensate her for the alleged rape. HL granted judicial review and remitted the matter to the CICB, since the absence of key evidence breached the rules of natural justice. 
Lord Slynn: Personally, he considered that the decision of CICB could be quashed on the grounds of material error of fact, though he preferred to advance on the alternative ground of breach of natural justice. “It is sufficient if objectively there is unfairness.”
