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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant Pakistani national sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision, refusing him leave to remain in the United Kingdom as a Tier 4 (General) student under the points based system for failing to provide evidence of funds available within the month before the application. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, accepted contemporaneous documents showing that the bank statement submitted with the application had been out of date. Further, the evidential flexibility policy did not cover the error.
