Bulale v Secretary of State for the Home Department.[2008] EWCA Civ 808; [2008] WLR (D) 238

“The Court of Appeal had jurisdiction, in very particular circumstances, to pursue a point of general importance in an immigration case not raised below once it occurred to the court, in order to ensure the state’s compliance with its international obligations. Where the point involved whether a propensity to commit robberies constituted a serious threat to society, it was for each member state to decide what sufficed to make threatened future criminal conduct serious enough to justify expulsion of an EEA national who had a right to reside in the United Kingdom.”
