SO, petitioner

Immigration – Failed asylum seeker – Leave to remain – Fresh claim – Right to private life – Petitioner's mental health. Court of Session: Refusing a judicial review petition by a citizen of the Ivory Coast who challenged a decision not to treat his further submissions as a fresh claim to remain in the UK, the claim being founded on, inter alia, his mental health and the treatment available in the Ivory Coast, the court held that a tribunal judge would have no power to entertain a ground of appeal alleging that the decision was not in accordance with the Immigration Rules and there would clearly be no prospects of success for such an appeal before an immigration judge; in any event the respondent had not left out of account any relevant matters or taken into account any irrelevant matters and she did not apply the wrong test.
