A Bradford bus driver and British National Party (BNP) member will find out tomorrow if human rights judges accept that his political loyalties led him to be fired from his job.
Redfearn v. the United Kingdom (no. 47335/06)
The applicant, Arthur Collins Redfearn, is a British national who was born in 1948 and lives in Bradford (England). The case concerns Redfearn’s complaint that he was dismissed from his job as a driver transporting disabled persons, who were mostly Asian, because he was a member of an extremist right-wing and racist party (the British National Party, “the BNP”).
He relies in particular on Articles 10 (freedom of expression), 11 (freedom of assembly and association) and 14 (prohibition of discrimination).
