Prospect of rehabilitation relevant to deportation decision

Court:

The Secretary of State appealed against decisions of the Tribunal refusing the deportation of three foreign criminals because they had better prospects of rehabilitation in the UK. Held: allowing the secretary of state’s appeal, the relative prospects of rehabilitation of foreign criminals in the UK or in their country of nationality were relevant to a deportation decision, but the tribunal erred on the amount of weight to be placed on this factor.

Hugh Southey QC was involved in this case.
