*R (on the application of Sehwerert) v Entry Clearance Officer (McDonnell and others intervening)

Immigration – Leave to enter. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the application for judicial review made by one of the 'Cuban Five' against the refusal of entry clearance to meet with United Kingdom parliamentarians (the MPs) to discuss his case. The refusal of entry clearance was a disproportionate interference with the MP's rights under art 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which had not been sufficiently justified by the Secretary of State.
