JS (Sri Lanka) v Secretary of State for the Home Department


[2017] Court of Appeal

JS had been excluded from the Refugee Convention under Article 1F. He had succeeded in appealing this exclusion at every level of the court system, from the First-tier Tribunal to the Supreme Court. The Secretary of State continued unlawfully attempting to exclude him from the Refugee Convention and her final appeal reached the oral permission stage at the Court of Appeal. Stephen secured a refusal of permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal, finally bringing the case to a conclusion after 10 years of litigation.
