Regina (Nasseri) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2009] UKHL 23; [2009] WLR (D) 148

The irrebuttable presumption, laid down in paras 2 and 3 of Pt 1 of Sch 3 to the Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc) Act 2004, that a foreign national who entered the United Kingdom via Greece could be returned to Greece because Greece was a place from which he would not be sent to another state to face inhuman and degrading treatment contrary to art 3 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, was not in itself incompatible with the Convention provided there was no evidence to show that on his return to Greece he was actually at risk of being removed to another country in breach of his art 3 rights.”

Regina (Nasseri) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

House of Lords

“As there was no evidence that Greece was a place from which a foreign asylum seeker would be deported to his own country to face inhuman and degrading treatment, there was nothing incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights in a statutory provision which deemed that Greece was a safe country to which he could be returned from the United Kingdom.”
