Immigration - Refugee - Asylum - Removal to third country - Requirement to apply Third Country Family Links Policy - Certification of claims as manifestly unfounded - Whether enforceable legitimate expectation that policy should be applied.
The Court of Appeal dismissed the claimants' appeals, which both raised issues involving a policy of the Secretary of State known as the Third Country Family Links Policy and the legal principle of legitimate expectation. There was no abuse of power in the first appeal, and therefore nothing, in terms of legitimate expectation to entitle the claimant to a judgment compelling the Secretary of State to apply the unrevised policy in his case. In the second appeal the Secretary of State never considered whether the policy should be disapplied on particular grounds, because on his view of the facts, the policy in any event had no application.
