ORDER AMENDED UNDER THE SLIP RULE UNDERLINED IN RED THIS 27TH FEBRUARY 2023
Application Number: CA-2021-003407
In The Court Of Appeal
On Appeal from Upper Tribunal Immigration and Asylum Chamber
27 February 2023
Lady Justice King
Lord Justice Singh
Lord Justice Warby
Secretary Of State For The Home Department
ON THE APPLICATION of the Appellant for an anonymity order.
UPON READING the papers and without a hearing
IT IS ORDERED THAT: –
- (Pursuant to s 6 HRA and/or CPR 39.2(4)) from the date of this order
(1) the letters MAH shall continue to be substituted for the name of the Appellant for all purposes in these proceedings
(2) there must be no reporting of
(a) the name of the Appellant or any other information which would be likely to identify him as the Appellant in this case or
(b) the names or addresses or other details about the relatives who are referred to in the judgment of the court or any other information about those individuals which would be likely to identify them as relatives of the Appellant.
- This order shall be published on the judiciary website in accordance with CPR 39.2(5).
- The order and the application for it shall be served by the claimant/appellant via the Press Association’s Copy Direct Service at:
- PA Media and any other party affected by this order are at liberty to apply to discharge or vary it. Any such application should be made in writing on notice to the parties in accordance with Part 23.
Anonymity directions were made in the First-tier Tribunal and the Upper Tribunal. This further order for the anonymisation of the Appellant and his relatives is necessary to secure the proper administration of justice and in order to protect the interests of those individuals.
The Appellant has demonstrated substantial grounds for believing that his return to Egypt would expose him to a real risk of an act of persecution. The reasons are set out in the court’s judgment dated 28 February 2023. It has been confirmed by counsel that the Secretary of State does not seek permission to appeal against that decision. For those reasons there are substantial grounds for believing that identification of this refugee would place his relatives in Egypt and elsewhere at risk of serious harm. There is no substantial countervailing public interest in the publication of their identities in connection with this case nor any reason to believe that this information is in the public domain to an extent that would render these orders futile.
