R (on the application of GE (Eritrea)) v Secretary Of State For Home Department and another

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The present proceedings concerned the retrial of the issue of the claimant Eritrean national's age. The Administrative Court held that the claimant's account and her chronology were true, and her date of birth, as she had consistently maintained, was 27 September 1994. Further, the procedural failings in the second defendant local authority's age assessments had been so serious as to be unfair and unlawful. Accordingly, they would be quashed.
