*AA (Nigeria) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Deportation. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the Secretary of State's appeal regarding deportation of the respondent, who was an EEA national with a permanent right of residence in the United Kingdom. The court held that, on the true construction of the legislative scheme and case law from the Court of Justice of the European Union, a permanent right of residence would not be lost merely by reason of criminality or a resulting sentence of imprisonment.
