UPDATE – PERMISSION GRANTED AT THE COURT OF APPEAL
Secretary of State to be challenged on failure to give adequate information to the public about the risks of 5G and to explain the absence of a process for investigation of any adverse health effects
We are delighted to announce that the Court of Appeal has today granted permission for our case to proceed on two grounds concerning:
1. The failure to provide adequate or effective information to the public about the risks and how, if it be possible, it might be possible for individuals to avoid or minimise the risks;
2. (a) The failure to provide adequate and sufficient reasons for not establishing a process to investigate and establish the adverse health effects and risks of adverse health effects from 5G technology and/or for discounting the risks presented by the evidence available; and/or (b) failure to meet the requirements of transparency and openness required of a public body.
These grounds advance a breach of the Human Rights Act 1998 by omissions and failings in violation of the positive obligations to protect human life, health and dignity, required to be met by Articles 2, 3 and/or 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
The case will now be sent back to the Administrative Court and we await the directions as to the full hearing in due course.
To our wonderful supporters: this is YOUR victory. Without your unerring faith in our case, this would not have been possible.
