Blow for applicants in appeal process

    Asylum seekers appealing against deportation are to lose their
    automatic right to remain in the UK while their cases are being
    heard, Appeal Court judges ruled last week.

    Lord Justice Brooke said the change should be brought about because
    of the numerous challenges against deportation being made in the
    Court of Appeal by illegal immigrants.

    “Appellants are pursuing wholly unmeritorious appeals simply to
    delay the time when they are to be deported,” he said.

    The ruling followed an appeal by an asylum seeker, which Lord
    Justice Brooke described as an example of the “frequent” unworthy
    challenges.
