Danso v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Deportation. The respondent Secretary of State decided to deport the appellant to the Gambia, pursuant to s 32 of the UK Borders Act 2007. His appeals against that decision were dismissed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appellant's appeal, held that the conclusion of the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), that the appellant's relationship with a woman had not reached the stage at which it could be described as family life, was not insupportable or perverse. Further, none of the factors on which the appellant could rely as militating against his deportation were unusual, nor could it possibly be said that, taken together, they amounted to very compelling circumstances that could outweigh the public interest in deportation.
