AE, petitioner

Immigration – Asylum – Judicial review – Refusal of leave to appeal. Court of Session: Refusing a judicial review petition by a Nigerian national who challenged the Upper Tribunal (UT)'s decision refusing leave to appeal against the First Tier Tribunal (FTT)'s dismissal of her appeal against the refusal of her asylum claim, the court held that there was no substance to the petitioner's principal submission that the FTT had failed to consider the evidence 'in the round' and the UT was entirely correct to reject that ground of appeal as wholly without merit; and the other grounds on which the petitioner sought to challenge the UT's decision amounted to no more than attempts to reopen findings made by the FTT that were based on evidence before it and properly and adequately explained in its decision.
