Manjit Gill QC & Edward Nicholson in Supreme Court Victory for Family Reunion Rights

Mon, 15 Feb 2010

The Supreme Court today heard and allowed the appeal in ZN (Afghanistan) v Secretary of State (2008) EWCA Civ 1420 with full reasons to follow. 
The Court of Appeal had held that when a refugee becomes a British citizen he no longer has the favourable rights accorded to refugees to bring in their families (as existing at the time of their flight from persecution) without having to show that there would be no recourse to public funds caused by the family arrival in the UK. The Supreme Court disagreed with this conclusion. Full reasons will follow. 
The Appellant was represented by Manjit Gill QC and Edward Nicholson.
