Regina v Secretary of State for the Home Department, Ex parte Yousaf Same v Same, Ex parte Jamil: CA 11 Jul 2000

A failure to appear at an earlier appeal which was through no fault of the appellant, should not be used by the Secretary as an excuse to defeat an appeal under the section. The Secretary of State should not treat the section as a safety net or fall back. It was in fact a secondary appeal, and its provisions should not be defeated by a merely technical defect.
