AM (Zimbabwe) v Secretary of State for The Home Department: SC 29 Apr 2020

Ability to deport the appellant, a Zimbabwean citizen, who, while lawfully resident here, has committed serious crimes. He seeks to challenge the order for his deportation by reference to article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights providing: ‘No one shall be subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment’. He is HIV positive and wishes to argue that if deported to Zimbabwe he would be unable to access the medication which he receives in the UK
and which prevents his relapse into full-blown AIDS.
