Permission to work judgment

I’ve just seen that judgment is now available on BAILII* in a recent successful challenge to UKBA’s refusal to grant permission to work to those who are entitled to it following the Court of Appeal judgment in ZO (Somalia).

More about the issue in previous posts starting here. It is a classic example of UKBA lawlessness. Incidentally, Steve Symonds of ILPA will be giving a talk on UKBA lawlessness at the ILPA AGM tomorrow, for which it is apparently not too late for members to book. I’ll be there!

* Enough of you are clicking on BAILII links to have induced the head honcho at BAILII recently to email me so say they were delighted that I made such free use of BAILII links but please acknowledge BAILII more – which I am absolutely delighted to do, BAILII is a marvellous website.
