Upper Tribunal- Immigration and Asylum Chamber- 20/05/2014
The Applicant is a national of Sri Lanka who first arrived in the United Kingdom in April 2010 and claimed asylum in June 2010. In April 2012, the Applicant brought a challenge to a decision of the Respondent of 15 April 2012. Permission was granted at a renewed oral application. The claim was settled by a consent order signed by the parties on 26 November 2012 and sealed by the Administrative Court on 11 December 2012 (hereafter the Consent Order).
The terms upon which the parties agreed to settle that claim, as set out in the Consent Order, are said to have been breached by the Respondent. That is the nub of the instant claim for judicial review, permission having been granted by the Upper Tribunal at a renewed application on 7 April 2014.
Pending the Respondent's clarification of her policy (which we were told may take some time), this judgment should make it clear to applicants and their representatives that they must ensure that any consent order they agree that makes provision for the claimant to make further representations clearly states whether the further representations may be made in writing or whether they should be made in person.
