[2007] EWCA Crim 243

Case summary last updated at 06/02/2020 11:56 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case Regina v F

Ds were convicted of being in possession of material likely to be useful for terrorism. Ds appealed on the basis that the relevant act only offered protection against democratic states. In this case the material was to be used against the govt of Libya which was a dictatorship. CA said that the act prohibited all acts or preparations of terrorism, regardless of their target. The appellants argued that prohibiting such documents would infringe article 10 freedom of expression. CA said that this was not a case involving freedom of expression and that in fact, by safeguarding the right to life of the potential victims of terrorism, the act was enforcing the European Convention for the protection of Human Rights and fundamental freedoms.
