G.M. (Sri Lanka) v The Secretary of State for the Home Department

Sri Lanka

UK: Court of Appeal found the Secretary of State should reconsider the Appellant's human rights claim, since her removal from the UK would be a breach of Article 8 ECHR.

The applicant appeals against the dismissal of her appeal by the Upper Tribunal ("UT") on 2nd December 2015 upholding the decision of the First-Tier Tribunal ("FTT") of 25th August 2015 upholding the decision of the Secretary of State of 20th February 2015 ("the Decision" and "the Respondent" respectively), refusing her application for asylum and for leave to remain on human rights grounds outside the Immigration Rules ("IR") and seeking to remove her from the United Kingdom.
