Facts of the case Police searched applicant’s bedroom, withoutout a warrent or his consent, but with the consent of the landlady.
Analysis This could have been a potentially interesting case, concerning the question of consent for searches and seizures – should that be given by the user of the house/location or by the owner? – but the claim is dismissed because the applicant has not exhausted all domestic remedies.
