Regina (G) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: CA 13 Apr 2005

The claimant had first sought asylum saying she was born in 1984. On being refused, she said she was born in 1988 and was only 15 years old, and that her removal and return to Somalia would breach the regulation, and interfere with her right to family life in that she would be separated from her cousin.
Held: The appeal failed. Although the judge had incorrectly applied the case of Razgar, if he had done so correctly, the result would have been the same. The dicta of Lord Bingham were to apply even though this case concerned the right to family life rather than mental health.
