The department has acted in cases brought under The Terrorism Act 2000, The Anti-Terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001, The Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005, The Terrorism Act 2006 and The Counter-Terrorism Act 2008. The new legislation has raised some significant Human Rights issues such as freedom of speech, the right to a fair trial and freedom of association.
The firm has acted on many matters of terrorism law including the police’s power to stop, search and arrest, extradition proceedings, hoax bomb threats, cases where assets have been seized or frozen in connection with money laundering or terrorism, allegations of Jihad, public disturbance, aiding terrorism via financial support, matters brought under the Human Rights Act 1998, and where individuals have been suspected, arrested or detained for alleged terrorist activity or promoting terrorism both within the UK and abroad. Tuckers Solicitors ensures our clients’ fundamental rights are protected.
The firm has acted on many high profile cases, including Lotfi Raissi v Secretary of State for Justice  where the applicant successfully gained redress for the Secretary of State’s unreasonable delay in dealing with a claimant’s application for compensation in respect of his detention pursuant to extradition proceedings.
The law recognises the importance of protecting people’s rights and the Human Rights Act 1998 ensures their protection. The firm acted on the case of HM Treasury v Mohammed Jabar Ahmed & Ors , which was the first case to be heard at Supreme Court, in October 2009. The case was specifically chosen because it raised important constitutional issues that are set to define the output of the UKSC. The Supreme Court found that the Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 and the Al-Qaida and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2006 art.3(1)(b) were unlawful.
Our lawyers are available 24 hours a day, providing immediate, first class legal advice, representation and assistance during criminal proceedings, ensuring the best interests of our clients.
