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

Immigration – Detention. The claimant issued judicial review proceedings, contending that the defendant Secretary of State's decision to detain him under immigration powers had been unlawful. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the preponderant evidence did not come close to establishing that the claimant had a serious mental health condition that could not be managed satisfactorily in detention or that his food and fluid refusal had been, or might have been, influenced by a serious health condition.
