The Parole Board has revised its Litigation Strategy

The Parole Board has revised its litigation strategy to ensure that it is able to continue to deliver best value.

During the first quarter of 2015, the Parole Board (the “Board”) received 85 pre-action Article 5(4) claims. This exceeds the total number of pre-action Article 5(4) claims received during the whole of the financial year 2014/2015. In light of the significant increase in the volume of claims, the Board has undertaken a review of its litigation strategy to ensure that it is able to continue to deliver best value by optimum use of the resources available to it.
