Somalian national applied for judicial review of the Secretary of State’s decisions detaining him pending deportation. The claimant argued that there had been no realistic prospect of an enforced removal to Somalia due to the lack of cooperation by Somalia authorities, and thus there was no realistic prospect of detaining him within a reasonable period. The application was dismissed.
Chris Buttler and Eleanor Mitchell were involved in this case.
