R (on the application of Kamki) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

DATE: 04 Nov 2015

The secretary of state was entitled to continue a foreign criminal's detention under immigration powers pending deportation. Even though the deportee had applied to the Criminal Cases Review Commission for a review of his criminal case that application was not a barrier to his removal as there was no live appeal against conviction.
