*R (on the application of AM, a child by his litigation friend OA and another) and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Asylum. Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights did not require a different approach to the expedited process to assess the eligibility of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children for transfer to the United Kingdom or the admission of the respondents outside the framework of the expedited process and the Regulation (EU) 604/2013. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, further allowed the Secretary of State's appeals against mandatory orders requiring the respondents to be admitted to the UK and held that the expedited process was unfair at common law, for the reasons given more fully in R (on the application of Citizens UK) v Secretary of State for the Home Department ([2018] All ER (D) 03 (Aug)).
