Guardian News and Media Ltd & Ors v Incedal (2014) EWCA Crim 1861

Guardian News and Media Ltd & Ors v Incedal (2014) EWCA Crim 1861

The Court of Appeal of England and Wales ruled that a terrorism trial must be partly heard in secret.  The judgment, delivered on 24th September, follows a previous challenge in the same case, which successfully overturned the CPS’s attempt to hold the entire trial in secret and forced the CPS to reveal the identities of previously anonymous defendants. 

The three judges said: ‘We are…satisfied that the solution arrived at in this court means that everything possible has been done to minimise the departure from the principle of open justice.’
