Today the Supreme Court hears the case of PJ v Welsh Ministers. It is about deprivation of liberty under Article 5 ECHR in the context of patients subject to a Community Treatment Order under the Mental Health Act 1983, and whether the First-tier Tribunal (Mental Health) or Mental Health Review Tribunal for Wales has the power to take into account human rights outside of its express statutory powers.

Amy Street appears on behalf of the Welsh Ministers, led by Richard Gordon QC, instructed by Joanna Corbett-Simmons and Allan Wilson at Blake Morgan LLP.
