UKHL 28).

EWHC 42 (Admin)) sets out the timescales for each control order. Both controlees were subject to more than one control order and, where the control order lasted for longer than 12 months, renewals of the control order were made in accordance with the Prevention of Terrorism Act 2005.

As set out in the House of Lords judgment in AF & Others one controlee is an Iraqi national and the other has dual British and Libyan nationality.
