Rochdale Paedophile Gang


Cathryn McGahey KC and Vinesh Mandalia of No 5 Chambers represented the Home Secretary in an appeal by three members of the Rochdale paedophile gang, who were challenging the Home Secretary’s decision to deprive them of their British citizenship.

The Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal, ruling that the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal had been entitled to conclude that the three had been involved in serious organised crime and that deprivation of their citizenship was conducive to the public good. The Court also held that the lower tribunals were entitled to find that the Appellants were likely to be deported as a result of losing their citizenship.
