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

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The claimant Nigerian national sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision to certify his asylum and human rights claims as clearly unfounded. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that whether the no realistic prospect of success or the clearly unfounded test had been used, the conclusion would inevitably have been the same. Further, nothing in the Secretary of State's decision letter indicated that she had failed to have regard to the claimant's medical evidence of his severe depression and suicide risk.
