Al-Jedda v Secretary of State for the Home Department: SIAC 22 Oct 2008

The Court was asked whether or not the procedural protections afforded by Article 6(1) ECHRR as identified by the House of Lords in Secretary of State for the Home Department v MB [2007] UKHL 46 [2008] 1 AC 440 apply to the Appellant’s appeal against the decision of the Secretary of State to deprive him of his British citizenship. He contends that they do because the appeal will determine his civil rights and obligations, so as to engage Article 6(1). The Secretary of State contends that the rights in question are public law rights, so that their determination does not engage Article 6.
