Regina (Nouazli) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: [2013] EWHC 567 (Admin);   [2013] WLR (D)  109

“The immigration detention of a third country national family member of an European Union national pending removal following a conviction from the host member state, pursuant to regulation 24(1) of the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006, fell within the scope of EU law so as to afford the detained third country national protective rights under EU law. Regulation 24(1) was compatible with EU law, and detention thereunder pending a decision to deport not prohibited, provided the conditions in article 27(1) and (2) of the Parliament and Council Directive 2004/38/EC were satisfied.”
