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

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The Administrative Court allowed the claimant Sri Lankan national's claim for judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision, finding that his further representations did not constitute a fresh claim for asylum. It was irrational for the Secretary of State to have concluded that there had not been a realistic prospect that an immigration judge would find that the claimant's risk of suicide could not be reasonably managed in Sri Lanka.
