Regina v Gough 1

Regina v Gough 2

The ECtHR statement of facts lays out the background to Mr Gough’s firmly held belief in the inoffensiveness of the human body and of his many arrests and criminal proceedings in England leading up to the imposition of the blanket ASBO ban applied for by the Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary in 2013. Following on from there, the blow-by-blow account of Mr Gough’s breaching of the interim ASBO as well as the full ASBO in 2013, 2014 and 2015 is accurately covered with comments on his naked court appearances.


A section on relevant British domestic law and practice elaborates on Public Order Offences, most notably Section 5 of the Public Order Act 1986. A concise history of Anti-social behaviour orders which were introduced by the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 are fully explained with the guideline set out and a summary of the principles and other considerations relevant to the making of an anti-social behaviour order. Several case studies are put forward as being pertinent to Mr Gough’s defence followed by relevant Council of Europe materials.


Mr Gough’s complaint “alleges that the imposition of the ASBO breached his rights under Article 10 of the Convention. He argues that its only purpose was to circumvent the maximum penalties permitted for public nudity by the Public Order Act and that, as a result, it did not pursue a legitimate aim. He further argues that it was neither necessary nor proportionate since it conferred no further powers on the police to deal with his behaviour and constituted a blanket prohibition on public nudity, removing any police and prosecutorial discretion.”
