Both claimants sought asylum. Their claims were rejected. They had made representations that they had ‘fresh claims’ in 2001, 2003 and March 2004 but on 10 October 2004, the Secretary of State gave instructions to an airline that the claimants were to be removed at 7.40 am on 12 October 2004. The claimants were not informed until 8.30 pm on 11 October 2004 when they were arrested but they were able to prevent removal. The court criticised the respondent’s practice.
