Muktar Ibrahim, Yassin Omar, Ramzi Mohammed

Lawyers for Muktar Ibrahim, Ramzi Mohammed and Yassin Omar are arguing the terrorists had an unfair trial because evidence from initial interviews should not have been used.

They have also claimed access to lawyers after their arrest was unfairly delayed.

An attempt to overturn their convictions on similar grounds was thrown out by the Court of Appeal in 2008 but the case has now been taken to Strasbourg.

If the European judges were to accept their argument they could rule their human rights were breached and their conviction unsafe.

The three, along with Hussain Osman, are serving at least 40 years after attempting to blow themselves up on the London transport network just two weeks after the 7/7 atrocity in 2005, when four successful bombers killed 52 people on three Tube trains and a bus.
