The government has this week announced that the Parole Board Rules will be amended so that some parole hearings can be held in public. This change to the Rules, which is only expected to affect a small number of cases in tightly controlled circumstances, follows a judicial review claim brought by Charles Salvador (formerly Bronson).

The background to the case is set out in our earlier news story here

The story been has been featured in The Justice Gap.

Mr Salvador was represented by Garden Court North Chamber’s Matt Stanbury, instructed by Dean Kingham and Yasmin Karabasic of Swain & Co Solicitors.
