R (JK) v Secretary of State for the Home Department


[2020] EWHC 3303 (Admin)
Dates of case

William Irwin represented the Secretary of State.

The Claimant obtained an interim injunction requiring the Secretary of State to release him from immigration detention within seven days of the order.

The Claimant was a foreign national offender (a Ugandan national) and the subject of a deportation order. He had been granted accommodation in principle under section 95 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999, but the pressure on accommodation supplies as a result of COVID-19 meant that there was a substantial delay in providing accommodation to the Claimant. In a reserved judgment the court granted interim relief.
