R v SSHD ex p ST [2008] EWHC 107 Admin

DATE: 01 Jan 2008

Though simply a refusal of Permission to apply for Judicial Review which failed due to causation issues, this case is significant for the Court accepting that the threshold in health removal cases arguably is reduced where the SSHD is in part responsible for the individual's poor health, in this case through the Claimant's long-term immigration detention. A further Judicial Review is currently stayed pending preparation of a joint psychiatric report.
