Reported Case

YH, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWCA Civ 116 (25 February 2010)

Date: 25/02/2010
Duncan Lewis, Reported Case Solicitors, YH, R (on the application of) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2010] EWCA Civ 116

The case raised the issue of how the courts should respond to repeat claims for asylum or human rights protection where an individual makes further submissions or allegations while in the UK or having left and on return to the UK. The appellant, an Iraqi citizen had made repeated claims beginning in November 2000 on the basis that he feared ill treatment in Iraq due to his involvement in illegal trade. The court dismissed his appeal for asylum and found his story to be inconsistent particularly as it had changed in his final submissions and he had no evidence to support his claims.
