The article examines the judgment on a case concerning the detention of a psychiatric patient in Great Britain. This case involved a psychosis patient who was recalled after a medical officer certified that he should be detained for further treatment. The patient argued that this recall contravened his human rights based on the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. Circumstances held by the European Court of Human Rights are discussed.
