Two terrorism suspects have won a landmark High Court ruling quashing their control orders and paving the way for them to claim compensation.

The two men, AF and AE, claim the orders made against them were unlawful because they breached their human rights.

The men were electronically tagged, placed under curfew and a series of other restrictions were imposed which limited their use of the internet and ability to meet and communicate with others.

They were not put on trail and the orders, which date back to 2006, were based partly on “closed evidence” from the security services which was heard by a panel of the Special Immigration and Appeals Commission behind closed doors
