Representation Donald Gordon (instructed by Mangala & Co) for the claimant.
  Lisa Giovanetti (instructed by the Treasury Solicitor) for the defendant.
Judgment Dates: 18 October 2002


Asylum - Removal of certain persons unlawfully in the United Kingdom - Removal directions - Validity of removal directions - Immigration Asylum Act 1999, s 69(5).

The Case

For the purposes of an appeal under s69(5) of the Immigration Act 1999, the validity of the removal directions had to be assumed. According, the removal directions which the immigration officer had given the claimant in the instant case, had to be treated by the adjudicator on appeal under s69(5) as valid in the absence of a separate appeal challenging their validity. He therefore had not erred when he failed to hold that there was not a valid appeal under s69(5) before him.
