R (on the application of Amougou-Mbarga) v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWHC 1081 (Admin)
Immigration - Detention - Lawfulness
The delay in deporting the Claimant was not unlawful or unreasonable due to his history of deceptive behaviour regarding his nationality.
26 April 2012
(1) The Claimant, a Cameroon national, challenged his detention by the Defendant and sought damages and costs. The Claimant contended that his detention from 22 October 2010, when it became known that he was born in Doula, was unlawful as no attempt to remove him was subsequently made, despite there being no bar upon the Defendant's ability to remove the Claimant.
