Immigration – Unlawful detention – Disability discrimination

23 March 2011
Administrative Court
Mr Stephen Morris QC

The failure to provide appropriate facilities in accordance with duties under the Disability Discrimination Act, combined with a slim prospect of removal from the country, made continued detention unlawful.
(1) The Claimant, BE, is an Iranian national who was detained between November 2008 and 1 June 2010. He sought a declaration that his imprisonment was unlawful and that his rights under sections 21B and 49A of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) were been breached.
