Secretary of State for the Home Department v Shehzad and another

Immigration – Appeal. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the Secretary of State's appeal in two cases where appeals had been allowed by the tribunals against the respondents' removal from the United Kingdom in circumstances where the respondents had had questions raised regarding the validity of the outcomes of their Test of English for International Communication. In the first appeal, the tribunals had not had jurisdiction to hear an in-country appeal. In the second, there had been an error in law in having rejected the Secretary of State's evidence as having been sufficient to shift the evidential burden.
