R (on the application of Akpan) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Leave to remain. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the Secretary of State's appeal and dismissed the respondent Nigerian national's application for judicial review of the Secretary of State's decision to refuse to grant her leave to remain under the Immigration Rules. The deputy judge had misinterpreted the guidance in the authorities on the interpretation of para 276ADE(vi) of the Immigration Rules and, hence, had misinterpreted the paragraph itself, giving too narrow a meaning to the concept of 'ties' to Nigeria.
