Anne Whyte QC leading Julian Evans act for Greater Manchester Poilice in a JR against the Home Office

Anne Whyte QC leading Julian Evans have been instructed to act for Greater Manchester Police in a JR against the Home Office. The claimant has sought a declaration of incompatibility that the prohibition of the use of intercept evidence in criminal proceedings in section 56(1) and schedule 3 para 21(3) of the Investigatory Powers Act 2016 is incompatible with the positive and procedural duties within Article 2 ECHR as it prevents or inhibits prosecution against state agents for life endangering offences from proceeding.
