Top judge's furious attack on courts for using human rights laws to defy Parliament over fight against forced marriage
by Jack Doyle and James Slack
British courts are using Human Rights legislation to knock down laws rightly made by Parliament, a Supreme Court judge said yesterday.
Lord Brown launched a furious attack on other judges for making 'highly contentious' rulings and 'frustrating' Government policy decisions.
His comments came as his court, against his wishes, overturned a ban on marriage visas for foreign nationals wanting to marry a Briton when either is under 21.
