SM and others (Somalia) v Entry Clearance Officer (Addis Ababa)

Immigration – Leave to enter. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appellants' appeal against the conclusions of the First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) and Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) upholding the respondent entry clearance officer's refusal of leave to enter the United Kingdom to join their family. It held, inter alia, that it was far from clear that the refusal of entry clearance to the appellants had constituted a serious interference with their right to a family life, under art 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights.
