Secretary of State for the Home Department v Onuorah

Immigration – Leave to enter. There had been, as a matter of law, no family or private life between the respondent Nigerian national and her brother, for the purposes of art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, and both the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) had erred in law in having decided that there had been. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the Secretary of State's appeal against their decisions, which allowed the respondent's appeal against the refusal of entry clearance to visit her brother for four weeks.
