DT (Afghanistan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The appellant Afghani national appealed against the decision of the Upper Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber) (UT) to dismiss his appeal against the refusal of the defendant Secretary of State to grant him asylum or humanitarian protection on the grounds that it would be safe for him to return to Afghanistan. Dismissing the appeal, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that the UT had not been unaware of the nature of the appellant's case or of the evidence of threatening letters sent to the appellant by radical Islamic groups and his failure to respond to them. The UT had not made an error of law in reaching its decision.
