A fresh decision concerning the Claimant's article 8 rights had been provided by the Defendant, and as such a fresh right of appeal arose. The Claimant did not succeed in demonstrating that it was unreasonable to pursue such an appeal.

Irwin J (judgment delivered extempore)
(1) The Claimant, a Turkish national, entered the UK and made an asylum claim. This was refused by the Defendant and his appeal against the refusal was dismissed. The Claimant's subsequent claims under Article 3 and Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights were unsuccessful. The Article 8 claim was refused on the basis that the Claimant had failed to provide evidence of the immigration status of a list of family members that he had provided, and failed to demonstrate his enjoyment of family life with these persons. In a subsequent reconsideration, the Defendant accepted that the Claimant had established a private life, but interference with that right was proportionate.
