Secretary of State for The Home Department v ST (Eritrea): CA 9 Jun 2010

The Secretary of State appealed against an order requiring him to recognise the respondent as a refugee and to grant permissions accordingly. His ddecision to order her return had been contrary to a finding of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.
Held: The appeal succeeded. Stanley Burnton LJ said that he would hold: ‘that article 32 applies only to a refugee who has been granted leave to enter and to stay in the United Kingdom. I would reject the contention that temporary admission or leave to enter for the purpose of the determination of a claim for asylum (or any other ground for claiming a right to stay) renders a stay lawful for the purpose of article 32. The purpose of article 32 is to give security of residence to a refugee who has been given the right to live in the contracting state in question.’
