Rehabilitation of offenders and ECHR article 8 - R. (on the application of QSA) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [DC AdminCt] 02.03.18 (Unreported)

Application of the "multiple conviction rule" under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 art.2A(3)(c) and the Police Act 1997 s.113A and s.113B, requiring disclosure of spent convictions, resulted in an interference with ECHR art.8 which was neither in accordance with the law nor necessary in a democratic society.
