No substantial compliance with Notice Regulations in asylum decision


Re: R (Chaparadza) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2017] EWCHC 1209 (Admin)

The claimant sought to challenge the defendant’s failure to serve notice of a decision to vary his leave to remain, the refusal to treat his submissions in support of a subsequent asylum claim as a fresh claim and the lawfulness of his detention. The Court allowed the claim for judicial review and damages were awarded for unlawful detention.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
