Report Number: 12881 Date: 21/4/2015

Title: Court: South East Man’s Right Violated (2 of 3)

Of interest to: South East

Script details:
Judges have ruled in favour of a convicted South East man who argued the length of time it took proceedings to happen was a violation of his human rights.

Graham Piper, who’s originally from Buckinghamshire but now lives in Essex, was locked up in 2001 for attempting to smuggle millions of pounds worth of cocaine into Britain.

An order to seize his assets wasn’t concluded until 2010.

Mr. Piper argued the delay was a breach of his right to a fair trial within a reasonable time under Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

But although the European Court of Human Rights has today agreed there was a violation, Anneliese Dodds, South East Labour MEP, says the ruling shows he’s not entirely blameless:

Title: Court: South East Man’s Right Violated (1 of 3)

Of interest to: South East

Script details:
A South East man, jailed for attempted drugs smuggling, did have his right to a fair trial breached, European judges have ruled.

Graham Piper, who’s from Buckinghamshire but now lives in Essex, complained the length of proceedings to seize his assets meant his case wasn’t heard in a reasonable time.

Judges at the European Court of Human Rights agreed that amounted to a breach of his right to a fair trial, but stopped short of awarding financial compensation.

South East Labour MEP, Anneliese Dodds, says they haven't completely sided with Mr. Piper:
