R (on the application of Al-Jedda) (FC) (Appellant) v Secretary of State for Defence (Respondent) [2007] UKHL 58

The court examines the applicability of English Law vs Iraqi law, whether UNSCR regulations and the UN Charter qualified Mr Al-Jedda rights under the ECHR, such that his detainment would not be a violation of Article 5 (1). The Secretary of State (SoS) also raised an new untested argument regarding where the appellant's detention was attributable to the United Nations and therefor outside the scope of the ECHR.
