Back in July 2010 the government announced an inquiry into allegations of British complicity in torture - see Watching the Law. Questions were raised at the time about this inquiry - see REPRIEVE.

There are no aspects of modern life untouched by law. My main interests are criminal law, constitutional law, human rights, family law, European Union law and some aspects of international law.
In law, the word "obiter", refers to remarks which are "by the way." My own comments are also "by the way" - I write about events which happen to interest me. I do not seek to dictate or even to persuade: merely to comment and inform and this blog must never be used as a substitute for professional legal advice.
