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

Passport – British Overseas citizen. The claimant was entitled to a declaration that she was a British Overseas citizen (BOC). The Administrative Court, in allowing her application for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision to refuse her a BOC passport, further held that, although the claimant had knowingly used a passport with a false date of birth, that did not, in law, disqualify her from the status of BOC to which she was otherwise entitled.
