Immigration - Asylum - Designated safe third country - Removal - Lawfulness of certification by Secretary of State - s 72(2).
The Secretary of State was entitled to certify a claim for asylum which raised human rights arguments only where he was satisfied that those arguments would clearly fail. The court's role in considering whether it had been reasonably open to the Secretary of State to reach that conclusion was to apply the Wednesbury test, and also to exercise anxious scrutiny in its considerations. That was much the same thing as asking whether a claimant had an arguable case that if he was returned there would be a breach of his human rights, since in those circumstances, it would not be reasonable for the Secretary of State to certify the case.
