Safe House

Is Akmed Hammen a potential danger to society? With his movement and activities severely restricted under a Home Office curfew, Akmed fights to clear his name and resume normal family life. Barrister Rebecca Nyman takes on the role of a Special Advocate to plead Akmed's case at a Closed Material Procedure hearing. Claire Rushbrook stars as London barrister Rebecca Nyman and Amerjit Deu stars as Akmed Hammen.

Safe House is set at a Closed Material Procedure hearing. The drama takes us inside the secretive legal world of counter-terrorism. Akmed is suspected of being a terrorist. He has not committed a crime, but the Security Services say they have substantial reasons for believing that he represents a clear and present danger. They have put him on a TPIM - the Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measure, which puts him under a curfew and involves other restrictions on his activities. At the hearing his Barrister - Rebecca Nyman - is challenging the TPIM.
