R (on the application of Anjum) v Entry Clearance Officer, Islamabad (entrepreneur - business expansion - fairness generally)

Immigration – Leave to enter. Where a Tier 1 applicant operated an existing business, the Immigration Rules, particularly paras 245D and 245DB, did not prohibit the use of part of the minimum fund to purchase a second business for the purpose of developing and expanding the existing enterprise. Accordingly, the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) quashed the defendant Entry Clearance Officer's decision, refusing the claimant Pakistani national's application for a Tier 1 (Entrepreneur) visa and the Entry Clearance Manager's affirmation of that decision.
