By Appellant’s Notice filed on 29 December 2021, the appellant (claimant below) appeals the decision of Lord Justice Lewis and Mrs Justice McGowan to dismiss the claim for judicial review, dated 23 November 2021.

Background: – The appellant challenged the sentence calculation dated 14 July 2020 and the lawfulness of his detention following his recall to prison after his failure to comply with the terms of his release on licence. The Judges dismissed the claim, finding that as the claimant committed his offences after 4 April 2005 the provisions governing release contained in the Criminal Justice Act 2003 applied to him and his release and calculation of the licence period were lawfully carried out.
