Judicial review challenging restrictions to places of worship during lockdowns in Wales and England

A group of more than 100 church leaders have launched judicial review proceedings of the Welsh and Westminster Governments’ decision to force places of worship to stop services during the second lockdown.

Ade Omooba, a prominent Pentecostal church leader who is leading the group, said: “We have been left with no alternative but to pursue a judicial review on this crucial issue and at this significant moment for the freedom to worship in church in this country.”

Jonathan Hough QC is leading Can Yeginsu of 4 New Square Chambers for the Claimants, instructed by Michael Phillips of Andrew Storch Solicitors.
