HAA (s.72: overseas conviction) Somalia  UKUT 366 (IAC) (10 October 2012) - This was an Upper Tribunal matter. The case was reported on the basis that in cases where s 72 of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 is invoked, it is important to see that the specific requirements of that section have been complied with. In particular, if the conviction was outside the United Kingdom, there must be either proof of the offence and sentence (s 72(3)), or certification under s 72(4). It does not appear that the statute requires certification to be in the letter of refusal.
Rajbhandari (PBS: funds - available) Nepal  UKUT 364 (IAC) (08 October 2012) - This was an appeal before the Upper Tribunal relating to a challenge against a refusal decision in respect of a Tier 1 (Post-study Work) Migrant. The case involved a consideration of the availability of funds in PBS cases. In this matter it was held that the notion that funds only need to be “available” to an applicant is, on the true construction of Appendix C of the Immigration Rules, applicable only to student applications.
