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

Immigration – Asylum seeker. The claimant St Lucian national sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decisions by her competent authority, which concluded that the claimant was not the victim of trafficking. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, concluded that the competent authority had taken the wrong approach, in particular, by its reliance on a detective inspector's report, and its failure to consider warnings in 'Victims of human trafficking – competent authority guidance' and in expert evidence.
