*DN (Rwanda) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Deportation. The unlawful decision to deport an asylum seeker did not bear on any decision to detain prior to deportation and accordingly, the appellant's appeal would be dismissed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that it was not open to it, to depart from law that was directly binding on it by virtue of the doctrine of precedent. Any such departure was a matter for the Supreme Court.
