WSM, petitioner

Immigration – Leave to remain. Court of Session: Refusing a judicial review petition by an Iraqi citizen, who challenged a decision refusing her and her daughter indefinite leave to remain in the UK in circumstances where limited discretionary leave had already been granted, seeking reduction of the decision in respect of her daughter only, the court held that the decision complained of was neither unreasonable nor unlawful; there was no obligation on the Secretary of State to grant indefinite leave to remain when what had been asked for was simply leave to remain, and the petitioner had failed to discharge the onus on her to provide evidence of why it was in her daughter's best interests to be granted a period of leave that was longer than the standard period of discretionary leave.
