Secretary of State for the Home Department v LW (Jamaica)

Immigration – Deportation. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, allowed the Secretary of State's appeal against the decision of the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (the UT) to dismiss her appeal against the First-tier Tribunal's decision to allow the respondent Jamaican national's appeal against deportation, and remitted the matter to the UT. Underlying the appeal was an important policy question as to the public interest in the deportation of foreign criminals, applied in the context of an individual who, although guilty of serious criminal conduct, had lawfully resided in the United Kingdom for over 40 years.
