Under s 85(3) of the Act the Court may order that a care recipient who is no longer subject to the criminal system, should recieve secure care ONLY if the Court considers that supervised care would pose a serious danger to the health and safety of the care recipient or to others. It was found the risk that the care recipient would reoffend was sufficiently serious to outweigh his liberty interest.Judgment Date: 24 May 2016. * * * Note: names have been changed to comply with legal requirements. * * *
