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

Immigration – Leave to remain. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant Secretary of State's decision, refusing him leave to remain in the United Kingdom, based on his rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. In particular, he relied on letters of support from responsible figures within his local community. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that, had there been a full consideration of the material concerning art 8 of the Convention, the decision might not have been the same. Further, the Secretary of State's supplementary decision failed to deal with relevant factors raised in the letters.
