Coker v Home Office


Currently unreported [2016]

This was a civil claim for false imprisonment, transferred to the QBD once the Claimant had been released from detention. It was held that failures to convey an immigration detainee to mental health assessments which the Defendant considered to be critical to her decision to continue his detention rendered that detention unlawful on Hardial Singh grounds. Damages of £25,000 were awarded in respect of a period of 3 ½ months unlawful detention.
