Case No: CO/4265/2022
In the High Court of Justice
King’s Bench Division
17 November 2022
The Honourable Mr Justice Julian Knowles
The King on the application of AM
Secretary of State for the Home Department
On an application by the Claimant for urgent consideration and interim relief
Following consideration of the documents lodged by the Claimant
Order by the Honourable Mr Justice Julian Knowles
- The Claimant’s application for an anonymity order is granted under CPR r. 39.2(4). The Claimant in this action shall have anonymity until further order. No report or publication of these proceedings shall directly or indirectly identify the Claimant. Pursuant to CPR r.5.4(c), a person not a party to the proceedings may obtain a copy of the statement of case, judgment or order of the court records, only if the statement of case, judgment or order from the court has been anonymised. In the case title, the Claimant’s name shall be replaced by the initials ‘AM’.
- The Defendant shall respond to the application for permission to seek judicial review and the substantive application for interim relief (ie, provision of accommodation in London, etc) by 4pm on Friday 25 November 2022.
- The papers are to be put before a judge for a decision as soon as reasonably practicable thereafter.
- Costs reserved.
5. Given the history, there is a degree of urgency about this matter. Anonymity is appropriate given the Claimant’s status as an asylum seeker and his mental health problems.
