Unreasonable delays in prolonging detention are unacceptable

Related European Convention Articles

The court states that detention or arrest of a person is only lawful in cases of non-compliance with the lawful order of a court, or in order to secure the fulfilment of any obligation prescribed by law. As the appellant fit neither of these criteria, the Court ruled that his detention had been unlawful under the terms of ECHR.
