Permission of UT required for amendments to the statement of facts after service


Re: R (ES) v SSHD [2018] EWCA Civ 2604

In a case where the respondent made an Article 8 claim and commenced judicial review proceedings to challenge removal directions, the tribunal ruled that permission is required for any amendments produced after service of the statement of facts and grounds and remitted this matter to the UT for a substantive decision on the respondent’s Article 8 claim.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
