R (on the application of RB (Sri Lanka)) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The claimant asylum seeker sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decisions, repeatedly refusing to treat his further submissions as amounting to a fresh claim and continuing to detain him when she was on notice of medical reports concerning his mental health and torture claim. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the claimant had not established that he had a realistic prospect of success before a fresh immigration judge. Further, there was no independent evidence of torture and the reports had not said that the claimant's symptoms could not be managed in detention.
