Regina v Immigration Appeal Tribunal and Secretary of State for Home Department ex parte Kamalakkanan: CA 29 Jan 1997

Renewed application for leave to bring judicial review on the basis that the adjudicator was alleged to have misapplied the Immigration Rules as to internal flight. The applicant was from Sri Lanka. The applicant’s evidence and submissions that conditions in Colombo were unsafe for him were rejected by the special adjudicator, and there were plain findings of fact that there was no reasonable likelihood that the applicant would be persecuted in the Colombo area.
Held: Given the findings of fact made, a reference to the particular rule would not have made a difference. Appeal rejected.
