*sm*Immigration Law – High Court (Administrative Court) – Adequate Reception Facilities – Kabul, Afghanistan*em*
The claimant, aged 20, was a national of Afghanistan who was a failed asylum seeker but granted discretionary leave to remain. An extension of that leave was refused, it being found that it would be reasonable to expect the claimant to go to Kabul, there being sufficiency of protection there. First-tier tribunal concluded that the claimant had been unable to discharge the burden on him to show that adequate reception facilities could not be made available to him in Afghanistan and that his account of the death of his father and brother had been untruthful. The Secretary of State made directions for the claimant's removal to Afghanistan.
The claimant brought judicial review proceedings seeking a declaration the Secretary of State reconsider the directions, taking into account the principle of corrective relief. Dismissed.
