Case no 42117/98
3. The applicants complain that Angela Bollan was deprived of association contrary to Article 11 of the Convention.
(...) The Court considers that Article 11 does not apply, within the context of prisons, to confer a right to mix socially with other prisoners at any particular time or place (see McFeeley v. the United Kingdom, no. 8317/78, dec. 15.5.1980, D.R. 20, p. 44 at p. 98). It accordingly rejects this complaint as incompatible ratione materiae with the provisions of the Convention pursuant to Article 35 §§ 3 and 4 of the Convention.
