Ryanair Ltd v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Circumvention of immigration control. The county court allowed Ryanair's appeal against the respondent Secretary of State's imposition of a charge notice of £4,000 in respect of two passengers without proper documents. It criticised the absence of a proper definition of whether the falsity of a document was reasonably apparent and held that the evidence fell well short of establishing that a trained representative with a basic knowledge of identification of false documents should have been expected to pick up the relevant irregularities.
