A High Court judge expressed amazement after he was told that an illegal immigrant who had been already deported twice was in line for third time.
Gbenga Sunday’s, attempt to take refuge in human rights legislation to thwart his deportation by the Home Office for the third time as breathtaking.
Mr Justice Haddon-Cave dismissed Mr Sunday’s attempt to launch a judicial review saying that no more public money should be wasted on the case.
The judge described the case as incredible at a hearing in the High Court in London.
He added that the claimant was removed not once but twice and it was for the third time he wanted to know what was happening in the particular case. He questioned why there should be any further waste of public money.
Mr Sunday was deported to Nigeria in 2005 and 2006 but had returned to Britain every time.
Mr Sunday had been arrested again and was due to be removed again on May 18 this year, the judge was told.
But on May 17, Mr Sunday began legal action claiming that he was in a relationship with a European Economic Area resident and deporting him would breach his human right to family life.
Mr Justice Haddon-Cave refused to give Mr Sunday permission to pursue the claim, after hearing objections from lawyers representing the Home Office.
'This case is so ... utterly without merit that no further public money should be wasted in dealing with it,' said the judge.
'The application for permission for judicial review is refused.'
