Permission granted to judicially review the Secretary of State’s refusal of British nationality where a conviction is ‘spent’ at the date of application

Fri, 10 May 2019

Frances Shaw: Permission granted on the papers to challenge on grounds of irrationality, unlawfulness and unreasonableness, the Secretary of State’s refusal of an application to naturalise owing to the Claimant’s failure to disclose a conviction, such that he failed to satisfy the ‘good character’ requirement and in consequence, faces a 10 year impediment to any future application for British nationality. The challenge concerns the lawfulness of refusal where the conviction is spent at the date of application.
