Hamzeh and others v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant Iranian nationals were failed asylum seekers who challenged the defendant Secretary of State's decisions to remove the first claimant and refuse the second claimant leave to remain. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the claims, held that the first claimant's case had been concluded for the legacy programme purposes by his departure from the United Kingdom. With respect to the second claimant, the Secretary of State had weighed the length of residence and delay appropriately in coming to the concluded decision that no exceptional grant of leave could be justified and removal had been appropriate.
