AM (Iran) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Asylum. The appellant Secretary of State appealed from a decision of the Upper Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber) (UT) that had concluded that the deportation of the respondent (AM) to Iran would place him at risk of ill-treatment in contravention of his rights under art 3 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed AM's appeal and remitted the case to the UT observing that to postulate the position that all returning Christian converts to Iran were at risk of harm under art 3 of the ECHR overstated the position.
