Immigration Leave to enter. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, dismissed the appeal against the decision of the Upper Tribunal, which confirmed the Secretary of State's decision to remove the claimant asylum seeker, on the basis that the acts she committed in attacking two farms in Zimbabwe were of sufficient gravity to be 'other inhumane acts', and therefore crimes against humanity, within the meaning of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court 1998.
