R (oao HA) v Secretary of State for the Home Department



[2017] QBD (Admin)

Obtained section 4 accommodation for an asylum seeker made street homeless on release from immigration detention.

The Claimant had been released from immigration detention after 20 months to prevent an unlawful detention application being made. However, this rendered him street homeless.

The SSHD failed to make a decision on the Claimant’s application for section 4 accommodation and support.

Stephen was instructed on an urgent basis as the client was sleeping rough outside the solicitor’s office. Accommodation and support were secured to the client’s satisfaction.
