While US Tightens Habeas, UK Grants It!

Not five minutes after I posted an update on habeas under the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, I see this fascinating story on the BBC about a judgment from the Court of Appeal directing the UK to either release Yunus Rahmatullah or explain why it is unable to do so. The UK has said that it plans to appeal to the UKSC.

I’ll work up a full post on this later today. There’s a lot to discuss that the news article only touches on or fails to discuss.
