Bakhash v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Passport – United Kingdom passport. While the issue of a previous passport was powerful evidence and might sometimes be determinative, the questions on whether the claimant had been entitled to be issued with the previous passport and whether she was the person to whom it had been issued had to be investigated. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claimant's claim, further held that the defendant Secretary of State's policy on use and change of names had not been rigidly applied.
