Pandemic rules for immigration appeals declared unlawful
The High Court has declared that the arrangements for dealing with Upper Tribunal immigration appeals during the coronavirus pandemic are unlawful.
Mr Justice Fordham held that the President of the Upper Tribunal’s guidance leans too heavily in favour of deciding cases on the papers rather than having a hearing, a situation that is “inconsistent with basic common law requirements”.
The tribunal must now write to everyone who lost a paper appeal since 23 March 2020 telling them to seek legal advice.
The case is Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants v President of the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber)  EWHC 3103
