MB’s two applications for naturalisation were refused on the ground that he did not meet the requirement for good character, but no reasons were given. Reasons were not given on the initial application on the grounds that it posed a threat to national security. In the second application, it was held that giving reasons would not be in the public interest. There is an open and closed judgment.
Samantha Knights and Tamara Jaber were involved in this case.
