Drug dealer injured in crash entitled to payment under MIB agreement

Although the judge admitted that the public would feel revulsion at the outcome, Delaney v Secretary of State for Transport [2014] EWHC 1785 (QB) (03 June 2014)
shows that there is no over-riding public policy rule against
compensating a drug dealer who suffered major injuries in a car accident
while engaged in a criminal venture. The law is based on EU directives
which allow no scope for such a rule.
