R(A) v. Secretary of State for the Home Department 

“The Secretary of State had not acted unlawfully in continuing to detain pending removal a failed asylum seeker who, having served a sentence of imprisonment for rape, was considered to be a risk to the public and highly likely to abscond. The period of detention was not unreasonable in the circumstances and where the detainee had refused to return voluntarily and no means were available for his enforced return.”
