FH (Bangladesh) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

“A two and three-quarter year delay by the Home Office in processing an application for indefinite leave to remain amounted to culpable and undue delay and produced conspicuous unfairness to a man who had evaded deportation in 1986 and lived under an assumed name for 23 years. Had his application made in May 2003 been dealt with promptly the claimant might have been able to take advantage of an extra-statutory concession that leave would normally be granted to a person with more than 14 years’ continuous residence.”
