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

Immigration – Asylum. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's refusal to accept his further representations as a fresh claim for asylum. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), in dismissing the application, held that, although there had been no express reference to the relevant policy, it was sufficiently clear that the claimant's period of residence in the United Kingdom had been considered. Further, the claimant's time in the UK had been considered in the context of art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
