The Supreme Court has today allowed the Appellant’s appeal in DN (Rwanda). In doing so, it has overturned the long-standing Court of Appeal decisions in R (Draga) v SSHD [2012] EWCA Civ 842 (“Draga”) and Ullah v SSHD [1995] Imm AR 166.

On Tuesday 3rd March, 2020, those who acted for the claimant and other experts, including Stephen Knafler QC, Paul Nettleship, Gordon Lee, Galina Ward and Yaaser Vanderman, will discuss what the case decided and the ongoing implications for the law of false imprisonment.
