High Court grants leave to seek judicial review of conviction for public order violation, but on confined grounds, finding that while the applicant had met the low threshold required for judicial review, his proceedings must be confined to challenging the order and not a vehicle for all and every complaint and grievance.

Judicial review – application for an extension of time – application to quash a criminal conviction for an offence contrary to s. 6 of the Criminal Justice (Public Order) Act, 1994 – power to extend time – O. 84, r. 21 – appropriate to grant leave for judicial review – some reliefs sought granted
