The impact of terrorism concerns on the Youth Court’s treatment of Detention and Training Orders (DTOs) – R(X) v Ealing Youth Court

An application for judicial review was refused on the basis that there was no restriction, neither by the power-giving statutory instrument nor by the non-statutory guidance, on the power of the youth court to order a late DTO release. This entitled the youth court to take into consideration the concerns about the increased risk to the public of terrorist activity unless release was delayed.
