Immigration - Leave to remain - Indefinite leave to remain

The Case

Immigration Leave to remain. The appellants' challenge to the respondent Secretary of State's restricted leave policy governing the grant of leave to remain to asylum seekers whose claims had been refused because they had committed particularly serious offences or who were excluded from humanitarian protection, but whom it was impossible to remove, was rejected. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, further held that the appellants had properly been refused indefinite leave to remain.
