Immigration Asylum seeker. Queen's Bench Division, Administrative Court: The court dismissed a judicial review brought by the claimant, a citizen of Cameroon, on the ground that the Secretary of State had failed to give anxious scrutiny to all the documents which formed part of her fresh asylum claim. The decision letters in question were all very detailed, containing extensive reasons. The Secretary of State had been entitled to reject the claimant's documentation and find that there was no fresh claim.
