Ahmed Mahad and others -v- Entry Clearance Officers
[2009] UKSC 16 (16 December 2009)
In a unanimous judgment the Supreme Court ruled that MW (Liberia) v SSHD [2007] EWCA Civ 1376 - a decision that had bound the Court of Appeal below in AM (Ethiopia) v Entry Clearance Officer [2008] EWCA Civ 1082 - had been wrongly decided and that financial support provided by third parties could be taken into account when considering whether a person who was seeking leave to enter the United Kingdom to join a sponsoring relative could be maintained without recourse to public funds. Third party support is not precluded from consideration under the maintenance requirements in Part 8 (Family Members) of the Immigration Rules.
