R (on the application of Kashif) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (JR jurisdiction: applicant in Scotland)

Immigration – Practice. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) held that it had jurisdiction to judicially review a decision of the defendant Secretary of State wherever taken, Scotland in the present case, and the question was an issue of forum non conveniens. There was no reason not to exercise that jurisdiction in the claimant's application for judicial review of the Secretary of State's decision refusing to reconsider an earlier decision, which refused the claimant leave on human rights grounds, but the decision had not been affected by the alleged error of law.
