Example text

He was receptive to lex specialis as a principle of interpretation; that the provisions of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR) should be interpreted so far as possible with the applicable rules of IHL. But he was less open to the contention that IHL displaced Convention rights altogether or that IHL prevailed where there was a conflict between the two bodies of law. With regard to the displacement or qualification of ECHR Article 5 rights, Leggatt J concluded: [T]hat in its present stage of development IHL does not provide a legal power to detain nor does it specify grounds on which detention is permitted nor procedures governing detention in the context of a non-international armed conflict such as that taking place in Afghanistan.
