*R (on the application of AHK and others) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Judicial review – Special Immigration Appeals Commission. The applicants had all been refused naturalisation as British citizens on the ground that they were not of 'good character'. Their applications for judicial review failed and they were granted permission to appeal. The appeals were stayed pending any certification of their applications by the Secretary of State under s 2D of the Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997, which would give them the opportunity to challenge the Secretary of State's decisions to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC). At a directions hearing, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, stayed the judicial review proceedings pending determination of any application to the SIAC.
