NS v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Unlawful detention – Damages. Court of Session: Refusing a reclaiming motion in judicial review proceedings in which a failed asylum seeker sought damages for wrongful detention, the court held that the Lord Ordinary had not erred in concluding that the petitioner was unlawfully detained for a period of one year and that an award of £36,000 would afford her appropriate compensation.
