GA (Ethiopia) (claimant/appellant) -v- The Secretary of State for the Home Department
Hussain – Second Appeal. National of Pakistan. Application for permission to appeal the decision of UTJ Hanson promulgated on 27 May 2020 upholding the decision of FTTJ Bart-Stewart dismissing the applicant’s appeal against the SSHD’s decision to refuse the applicant’s application for a residence card confirming his right to reside in the UK as an extended family member of his uncle an EEA national exercising treaty rights in the UK.
The application was refused on the basis that the applicant failed to provide adequate evidence that he was dependant on his uncle and or residing with him prior to entering the UK and since he entered the UK.
GA (Ethiopia) – Second appeal. National of Ethiopia. Refusal of asylum. Risk as member of Ethiopian opposition group PG7.
The FTT dismissed the appeal on credibility grounds and found there had been a durable change since the country guidance in MBA (post).
The UT dealt with the error of law determination on the papers on the basis that the solicitors had only asked for an oral hearing on the re-making decision. It dismissed the appeal for no error of law. The FTT had been correct to find that the evidence before it showed durable change since the country guidance in MBA (OLF & MTA – risk) Ethiopia such that the applicant would not be at risk.
