Immigration - Asylum - Appeal from special adjudicator - Determination - Refusal of permission.

The Case

The court ruled that the Immigration Appeal Tribunal had been entitled to refuse permission to appeal from the decision of the special adjudicator dismissing the claimant's appeal against the refusal of his asylum claim, since although there had been some lack of clarity as to the standard of proof which the adjudicator had applied, in the circumstances no prejudice had been caused to the claimant.
