*R (on the application of TN (Vietnam)) and another v First-tier Tribunal (immigration And Asylum Chamber) and another

Immigration – Appeal. The First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (the FTT) had no jurisdiction to determine the claimants' applications to set aside earlier appeal decisions made by it, whether made by way of application or of its own initiative. The Divisional Court further held that the FTT's power to act of its own initiative, under s 9(2)(a) of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, had been successfully reduced by rules which had been properly made pursuant to the power conferred by s 9(3)(d) and, in so far as necessary, by s 9(3)(a).
