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

Immigration – Asylum. The defendant Secretary of State's decision to certify the claimant Nigerian national's asylum claim under s 96(2)(c) of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 had been one which had failed properly to address and exercise the Secretary of State's discretion in the way required of a reasonable decision-maker. The Administrative Court further held that the Secretary of State's decision to refuse to accept that the additional supplied material had amounted to a fresh claim had been unreasonable.
