Upper Tribunal has the right to cancel the decision on permission for judicial review of the immigration case

The Court of Appeal confirmed that the Upper Tribunal has the same powers as the High Court and can overturn the decision to grant permission for judicial review. In case of  R (Singh) v EWCA Civ 1014, Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019], the Upper Tribunal cancelled the previously granted permission for judicial review of the case, because the Home office was unable to attend the hearing due to a misunderstanding of the parties.
