R (on the application of Anam) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (No 2) [2012] EWHC 1770 (Admin)

Immigration - Detention - Hardial Singh - Removal

The Claimant's detention became unlawful upon there being no prospect of his removal within a reasonable period. Prior to this point, the failure to apply a policy as to the detention of persons with mental health issues did not result in substantial damages being available, because he could otherwise have been lawfully detained.
