Stop the Secret Jailings - release Charles Roy Taylor
The campaign to stop secret jailings is going well. The law is entirely clear people cannot be jailed with giving details in public of what is happening including the offence and jail term.
The fact that this hasn't been done doesn't mean that we will tolerate it from now.
Interestingly the reason the 1679 Habeas Corpus Act was brought in was judges jailing people for things that weren't illegal. What is happening is that illegal court orders are issued and then people jailed in secret for breaking them.
I really do think the law should apply in Family Division courts as well as the rest of the country.
Charles Taylor's jailing has now been reported in The Times (Thursday) and on Meridian ITV News (yesterday). The campaign for his release is also growing.
