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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision, refusing her application for indefinite leave to remain because, due to her father's deception, she had not been lawfully resident in the United Kingdom for ten years. Neither a certificate of entitlement to the right of abode endorsed on her passport nor her British passport meant that she had been a citizen and the policy in Ch 55 of the Nationality Instructions did not apply.
