56. In the instant case, having regard to the applicant’s age, his state of health, the absence of any previous conduct giving serious cause to fear that he represented a security risk, the prison governor’s written instructions recommending normal and not heightened supervision and the fact that he was being admitted to hospital the day before an operation, the Court considers that the use of restraints was disproportionate to the needs of security, particularly as two police officers had been specially placed on guard outside the applicant’s room.
