CategoryNews Author Zane Malik Date

The High Court handed down the judgment in AT (Guinea) v Secretary of the State for the Home Department and First Tier Tribunal (Social Entitlement Chamber) [2019] EWHC 2709 (Admin).

The High Court considered the challenge by AT to his detention by the Secretary of State for the Home Department for around one year, from March 2018 to March 2019. AT also challenged the decision made by the First Tier Tribunal (Social Entitlement Chamber) to dismiss his appeal is relation to statutory support. There was also a challenge to the way in which AT’s applications for accommodation and support under sections 4 and 95 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 and Schedule 10 of the Immigration Act 2016 were considered.

The High Court, dismissing AT’s claim, held that his detention was lawful at all times and that the First Tier Tribunal (Social Entitlement Chamber) made no arguable error in dismissing his appeal. The High Court further held that AT, at martial times, was not entitled to accommodation and support under sections 4 and 95 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 and Schedule 10 of the Immigration Act 2016.
