CategoryNewsDate

Alex Ruck Keene (led by Henry Setright QC) has appeared on behalf of the Health Service Executive of Ireland in the first case upon the placement of a foreign minor in an English psychiatric institution under the provisions of Council Regulation (EC) 2201/2003 (‘Brussels II Revised’).   As with the earlier case of Re M ([2011] EWHC 3590 (COP)), concerning the placement of an adult falling with the scope of Schedule 3 to the MCA 2005, this case breaks new ground as regards the operation of cross-border therapeutic placements.
