First Judicial Review of the Justice and Security Act 2013

In R (on the application of Ignaoua) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2013] EWHC 2512 (Admin), a Claimant who had been excluded from the United Kingdom sought to challenge the Home Secretary’s powers, under the Justice and Security Act 2013, to terminate existing judicial review proceedings. The High Court held that the powers given to the Secretary of State were lawful and that Parliament’s intention was clear, even though no new SIAC rules had yet been approved. Julian Blake appeared for the Home Secretary.
