why was the HRA passed and how does it protect human rights in court?

Expert's answer

HRA is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom which received Royal Assent on 9th November 1998 and was implemented on 2nd October 2000. Its purpose was to incorporate into UK law the rights stipulated in the European Convention on Human Rights. It ensures that human rights are protected in court by making a remedy for breach of a convention right available in UK courts without the need to visit he European court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. More particularly, HRA makes it unlawful for any public body to act in a way which is unacceptable with the convention, unless the wording of any other primary legislation provides no other option.
