Cases Citation

[2012] EWCA Civ 418, [2012] 1 WLR 3259

The Home Secretary made control orders against two Pakistani nationals. One voluntarily returned to Pakistan and the other was extradited to the United States. The control orders ceased to have practical effect and the High Court accordingly stayed the control order proceedings. Was the court entitled to do that when neither individual had exercised their right under the statute to request the discontinuance of the proceedings?
