R (on the application of Botan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Detention. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimant Somali national's application for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decisions detaining him pending deportation since 7 June 2013. It rejected the claimant's contention that, between 8 June 2014 and 2 March 2017, there had been no realistic prospect of an enforced removal to Somalia because of lack of co-operation by the Somali authorities, such that there was no realistic prospect of detaining him within a reasonable period.
