    You could mention the issues with the way terror suspects have been subjected to torture and inhuman or degrading treatment contrary to Article 3 of the ECHR. The case of Ireland v United Kingdom involving IRA suspects and the "five techniques" used on them. Then there is the example of Guantanamo Bay; read up on the US arguments against the accusations of torture and the claims that waterboarding isn't torture.

    The latter example only applies if you're writing about global human rights as opposed to just human rights in the UK, of course.

    Thanks for this, unfortunately i am focusing on the UK so unable to use the latter example. I'm trying to find examples that do not include the troubles in NI but struggling, any ideas?

    Another example is the issue with extradition of terror suspects like Abu Hamza to countries where there is a reasonable a chance that they could be tortured. The government is currently trying to amend the law to make the extradition process easier. I'll see if I can find a good link. Use the case of Chahal v The United Kingdom.

    Hi again, I was wondering whether you know of any other cases where human rights need to be breached so that terrorism is prevented and to protect the UK public?

    Thanks

    Hi Sorry if it's too late but a highly controversial way of preventing terrorism is the idea of shooting to kill where a persons Article 2 rights are undermined in order to protect the public at large. In relation to the United Kingdom the main cases are McCann v The United Kingdom 2011 and Armani Da Silva v The United Kingdom (Jean Charles De Menezes) 2016
