Yilmaz v Secretary of State for the Home Department: Admn 26 May 2005

The applicant had sought and been granted temporary leave to stay pending the checking of his documentation. He overstayed, and when he applied to stay permanently he was treated as an illegal immigrant.
Held: He had been properly so treated. A temporary admission merely allowed him not to be detained whilst the document check was made. The breach of a condition of that release made his presence illegal.
