Mayday 2001 Protest Detention Damages Case Fails

23-03-2005 14:27

held for over 7 hours
During Mayday 2001, police trapped protestors in Oxford Circus for 7 hours without access toilets, food or water.

Nearly four years later, the High Court has rejected compensation claims by Lois Austin and Geoffrey Saxby who claimed they had been ilegally imprisoned and that their "right to liberty" under the European Convention on Human Rights had been breached when they were held for over seven hours along with thousands of other people.

There are around 150 other claims by people held by the police operation which are depending on the test case outcome.

The pair have been given leave to appeal and say they will do so.

The full judgement will soon be available here:

If you agree with my three point voting plan please promote it amongst your UK friends and neighbours. The hopes and fears of countless millions around the world are riding on this one.
