Bank Mellat v HM Treasury – WLR Daily

Bank Mellat v HM Treasury [2010] EWHC 1332 (QB); [2010] WLR (D) 148

“The powers conferred on HM Treasury by Sch 7 to the Counter-Terrorism Act 2008 to give directions by order to persons operating in the United Kingdom financial sector could be lawfully exercised without allowing persons likely to be adversely affected by the order an opportunity to make prior representations; and the test of proportionality applied by para 9(6) of Sch 7 to the requirements imposed by such a direction was to be interpreted consistently with the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, according to which the means used did not always have to be limited to the minimum necessary to accomplish the legislative objective.”
