Mahajna v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2011] EWHC 2481 (Admin)

Immigration – Detention – Deportation – Reasons

Failure to give proper and sufficient reasons for arrest pending deportation rendered detention unlawful.
30 September 2011
Administrative Court
Nicol J
(1) The Claimant, an Israeli citizen, objected to the Secretary of State’s decision to deport him. The decision occurred after the Claimant entered the UK as a visitor for 6 months on 25th June 2011. At this time, the Claimant (and seemingly the Immigration Officer granting him leave to visit) was unaware that on 23rd June 2011 the Secretary of State had decided that the Claimant should be excluded from the UK on the basis that his presence was not conducive to the public good. The Claimant was a three time elected mayor of his town, and was an outspoken critic of the Israeli government policies.
