Rwanda Permission to Appeal Application

Rwanda Permission to Appeal Application

14 June 2022

The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom (UKSC) received a Permission to Appeal application in the matter of R (NSK (Iraq)) v Secretary of State for the Home Department last night (13 June 2022).

The Appellant seeks permission to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal, dated 13 June 2022, by which the Court dismissed the Appellant’s appeal of Swift J’s Order, dated 10 June 2022. That Order refused to grant individual or general interim relief to stay the removal of asylum-seekers on a charter flight to Rwanda pending the substantive hearing of the claim for judicial review.

This morning, a panel of three Justices, comprising President of the Supreme Court, The Right Hon The Lord Reed of Allermuir, Deputy President of the Supreme Court, The Right Hon Lord Hodge and The Right Hon Lord Kitchin have considered the application.

The Court’s decision on this application will be broadcast live via the UKSC website at 1215 today (14 June 2022). Details of the decision will be published on the UKSC website as soon as the live broadcast has finished.
