R (on the application of Corbiere Ltd and others) v Secretary of State for Justice and another

Immigration – Deportation. It had not in been unlawful for the first defendant Secretary of State for Justice not to exercise the discretionary power to recall the interested party, X, a foreign criminal, to prison and the claimant companies, which had issued civil proceeding against him, were not entitled to be informed of the terms of any future licence issued to him. The Administrative Court further held that the second defendant Secretary of State for the Home Department had not acted unlawfully in concluding that the public interest in deporting X without further delay was not outweighed by any increase in the potential risk of him interfering with the possessions of the claimants abroad.
