*Secretary of State for the Home Department v Dumliauskas and others

European Union – Freedom of movement. The Secretary of State had decided to expel three European Union citizens from the United Kingdom on the ground that their conduct had represented a genuine, present and sufficiently serious threat affecting one of the fundamental interests of society. The Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) allowed their appeals on the basis that there would be a better prospect of them being rehabilitated if they remained in the UK. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the Secretary of State's appeals in the circumstances of each case, but held that, in considering whether an individual was to be expelled, the prospect of rehabilitation was relevant, even if the individual did not have a permanent right of residence.
