FZ (China) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Appeal. Following a sentence of imprisonment of eight years, the appellant was made the subject of a deportation notice. The appellant relied on the fact that his wife and daughter were United Kingdom citizens. His appeal was dismissed by both the First-tier and Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chambers). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division dismissed his appeal. There was no doubt that, if the appellant's wife was herself compelled to leave, the child would be compelled to go with her, but there was no compulsion on the wife and, in those circumstances, the child could not be said to be compelled either.
