K (a child) v SSHD [2018] C1/2018/2085


An important appeal concerning section 50 (9A) of the British Nationality Act 1981 (“s.50 (9A)”) and whether the section is incompatible with Article 14 ECHR, read with Article 18. The Claimant succeeded at first instance but the SSHD obtained permission to appeal. Victoria was instructed by JCWI, who were granted permission to intervene in light of the wide public interest. Written submissions and evidence was submitted and the SSHD conceded the appeal shortly before the hearing.
