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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant sought judicial review of the refusal of further leave to remain in the United Kingdom on the basis that he had not been given the letter notifying him that his prior leave had been curtailed. The Administrative Court, in allowing the appeal, held that merely to send a curtailment of leave letter to the person's address and rely on the receipt signed by another individual was manifestly insufficient to ensure that the written notice was 'given' to the person concerned. Accordingly, leave had not been validly curtailed and the application for further leave to remain ought to have been granted.
