MF (Nigeria) v Secretary of State for the Home Department – WLR Daily

MF (Nigeria) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2013] EWCA Civ 1192; [2013] WLR (D) 380

“The new immigration rules, introduced by Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules (2012) (HC 194) into Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules (1994) (HC 395), which concerned the deportation of foreign criminals and the evaluation of their article 8 rights under the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, were a complete code. Where a foreign criminal came within the provisions of paragraph 399 or 399A of HC395, as amended,, he could be entitled to leave to remain on a limited or indefinite basis on article 8 grounds, but where those paragraphs did not apply very compelling reasons, described as ‘exceptional circumstances’, would be required to outweigh the public interest in deportation.”
