We are delighted that the Court of Appeal agreed with us that Chapter 6 of the Hate Crimes Guidance was a disproportionate breach of Harry’s article 10 rights, and also that the supposed ‘revisions’ to the 2014 Guidance in 2020 did not go nearly far enough to deal with this.
The Court of Appeal clearly stated that the Guidance violated Harry’s rights to freedom of expression.
We look forward to seeing how the Guidance is now re-drafted – and how the police are going to deal with the many thousands of NCHIs on their databases.
