Article 8 – Human Right Act 1998

Article 8 of the Human Rights Act also individual’s information.

During our research we came across  two cases in front of the ECHR,  relating to the disclosure of individuals’  HIV+ status without their consent.  Both cases, the Z v Finland and I v Finland happened some time ago in Finland.

More recent case, the Brent Council v  N  P  refers to the Article.

When F considered  handling his case as an LiP,  on 13th October 2016, he asked for advice from the Ministry of Justice Legal Aid Department.

He was told that his case would qualify for Legal Aid and should he wish to apply for it, it must be through a Legal Aid Solicitor.

As he could not find  such a professional, he decided to publish his concerns in this Blog and seek information, advice or just a comment  from the Social Media.
