Mr Bromby publishes an article on a recent Privy Council case

Senior Lecturer, Michael Bromby, has published an article in the Judicial Review journal entitled The Privy Council Reinstates Principle Over Pragmatism: Inherent Powers and When to Use Them in Relation to Holding a Closed Material Procedure.  This article reviews a recent Privy Council case concerning the transfer of a prisoner from the Cayman Islands to the UK, for which the Privy Council sat here in the Cayman Islands for the first time in history.  The appeal centred on whether or not a closed material procedure could be used, which would have resulted in the appellant and his legal team being absent from part of the proceedings against him.  The case is a significant development in the area of judicial review and of relevance not only to the Cayman Islands but to the UK and all the jurisdictions that fall under the Privy Council.
