Tasaddat Hussain

Tasaddat Hussain is working on a lead case which will be heard by the Master of the Rolls later this month.

GA (Ethiopia) v. SSHD C5/2021/0004 involves a challenge to the lawfulness of the Upper Tribunal Presidential Practice Guidance Note 2021 (PGN) relating to the consideration, hearing and disposal of error of law applications from decisions of the First Tier Asylum and Immigration Chamber.

The PGN directed that such hearings would no longer be heard orally as a matter of course due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the new norm would be a paper only hearing unless good reasons could be shown to the contrary.
The legality of that position was explored by the lower courts in two cases:

There are more than 30 cases stacked behind this lead case. Tasaddat Hussain (who appeared in EP (Albania)) is working in collaboration with Charlotte Kilroy QC (who appeared in JCWI and EP (Albania)).The case will be heard over two days before the Master of the Rolls on 26-27 January 2022.
