We have enormous sympathy and the greatest respect for those who have acted with such determination and industry on behalf of the claimant; the case has been conducted on behalf of the claimant with great skill and very considerable restraint and economy….They have substantially succeeded on the issue… and in that success they have sustained a very important public interest under the Convention that otherwise might have gone by default.  We cannot stress too highly our indebtedness to the claimant’s legal team and the necessity for the highest quality of legal representation in cases involving such difficult issues relating to important matters of real public interest.  R (Ali Zaki Mousa (No.2)) v Secretary of State for Defence [2013] EWHC 2941(Admin). Judgment dated 02.10.2013

Rt Hon Sir John Thomas and Honourable Mr Justice Silber
