(Court of Appeal; Laws, Rix and Wilson LJJ; 18 December 2008)
A person who had been recognised as a refugee in England, but who had subsequently been granted British citizenship, ceased to be a refugee, and the family reunion policy applicable to recognised refugees did not apply to such a person. The ordinary immigration rules for family members of a British citizen applied to such a person instead. The requirement that such family members be accommodated and maintained in the UK without recourse to public funds was an inherent part of those rules.
