The law of habeas corpus in Ireland



ISBN: 9781851828364

September 2006


This study describes the evolution of the habeas corpus remedy in Ireland from the Elizabethan era to the enactment of Article 40.4. It analyses the scope of the judicial enquiry under Article 40.4.2. It describes the operation of the remedy in three contexts in which it now functions: detention in the course of the criminal prosecution, administrative detention under the immigration and mental health codes, and detention incidental to civil litigation.
