Supreme Court grants permission to appeal in Kiarie “deport first, appeal later”

24 Mar 2016

The Supreme Court has this week, 22 March 2016, granted permission to appeal in the case of R (Kiarie) and Anr v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2015] EWCA Civ 1020.

Kiarie is the lead judicial review challenge to the “deport first, appeal later” regime introduced into UK law by the Immigration Act 2014. The principal issue concerns whether requiring a foreign criminal to pursue an out of country appeal properly respected their Article 8 right to a fair and effective procedure.

Garden Court North Chambers’ Joseph Markus represents Mr Kiarie and is led by Richard Drabble QC and instructed by Tom Giles of Turpin & Miller LLP.
