Immigration - Appeal - Deportation - Appeal against deportation - Applicant convicted of sexual assault - Home Office issuing deportation order - Applicant appealing - Immigration judge allowing appeal - Tribunal finding, on reconsideration, material error of law - Tribunal overturning first tribunal's decision and dismissing applicant's appeal - Whether tribunal erring.
In circumstances where the applicant had received a two-year conditional discharge for a sexual assault and had received a deportation order in view of a recommendation for deportation following that offence, the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal had erred in stating that there would need to be the most exceptional circumstances before a person who received a condition discharge could be recommended for deportation. That approach did not arise from the legislation and was tantamount to saying that, where a sentencing court had made an order for conditional discharged and made a recommendation for deportation, only in the most exceptional circumstances would the tribunal permit such a recommendation to be carried out.
