Regina (Lika) v Secretary of State for the Home Department: CA 16 Dec 2002

The applicant was an ethnic Albanian, whose application for asylum had been rejected on the ground that he had passed through Germany. The Dublin Convention did not create rights enforceable by individuals, its purpose is to produce a system which will benefit asylum seekers generally. It does so by governing the responsibilities of the member states. It could not create a legitimate expectation.
