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

Immigration – Detention. The claimant sought judicial review of his detention by the defendant Secretary of State under immigration powers for periods totalling seven years and two months. The Administrative Court held that the claimant had been unlawfully detained between 13 July and 10 December 2013. Accordingly, he was entitled to damages for false imprisonment, which were more than nominal, to be assessed. Further, the Secretary of State had not refused to determine the claimant's application for accommodation under s 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 and the issue of a further deportation order in the claimant's correct name had not been unlawful.
