Last of the Cart JRs?

21 Mar 2023

Permission was granted for Judicial Review of the decision of the Upper Tribunal not to grant permission to appeal from the First Tier Tribunal. Pievsky J KC held that it was arguable that the FTT ought to have done more in their reasoning than accept the Appellant’s concession that he had been convicted of an offence causing “serious harm” within the meaning of s. 117D(2) of the Nationality Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, where he later sought to withdraw that concession before the UT. It was arguable that the UT ought to have permitted the concession to be withdrawn and that the decision of the FTT was not otherwise sustainable. Emma Stuart King appeared for the Claimant instructed by Joanna van Molendorff of Qore Legal Ltd.
