The Case

In the instant case, the claimant, a Turkish national whose asylum claim had been rejected on the basis that he had engaged in a fraud when he arrived in the United Kingdom, could not be heard to contend that that decision was inconsistent with a recent judgment of the European Court of Justice, namely R (on the application of Tum) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: (Case ) , or the relevant principles arising from the domestic authorities, namely R (on the application of Tum) v Secretary of State for the Home Department; R (on the application of Dari) v Same and R (on the application of Temiz) v Secretary of State for the Home Department which related to the applicability of the 'standstill' provision, namely art41(1) of the Additional Protocol to the Turkey-EC Association Agreement.
