Sherif El Gazzaz v Secretary Of State For The Home Department [2018] EWCA Civ 532

The Court of Appeal held that the Upper Tribunal had been entitled to uphold the deportation of a foreign criminal to Egypt, notwithstanding his mental-ill health and the fact that he was subject to a hospital order, having found that there were no very compelling circumstances such as to outweigh the strong public interest in deportation of a foreign criminal under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 s.117C. The gap between the health systems in the UK and Egypt was not sufficient to make his removal disproportionate in terms of his rights under ECHR art.8, and the making of a hospital order did not remove the presumption in favour of deportation under the UK Borders Act 2007 s.32.
