Secretary of State for the Home Department v KE (Nigeria)

Immigration – Deportation. Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 s 117D(4)(d) included offenders who had been sentenced to a hospital order, such that a non-British national who was convicted and sentenced to a hospital order with restrictions was a foreign criminal who had been sentenced to a period of imprisonment of at least four years. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the public interest required their deportation, unless there were very compelling circumstances that meant that it would be a disproportionate interference with their rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights to deport them.
