R (Nasseri) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2008] EWCA Civ 464; [2008] WLR (D) 150

“The scope of the deeming provision in Sch 3, Pt 2, para 3(2) of the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants etc) Act 2004, which required states listed in Sch 2, Pt 2, para 2 of the Act to be treated as countries safe for a person to be returned, was limited to the actual process of executive decision or adjudication of whether a person’s removal would contravene his rights under art 3 of the Human Rights Convention. It did not preclude a more general consideration of whether a listed state’s laws and practices were Convention compliant, therefore the list system was not incompatible with art 3 of the Convention.”
