Kind words for Home Office from Upper Immigration Tribunal

8 April 2017

Day in day out, the Upper Immigration Tribunal – properly known as the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) hears cases. It deals with appeals against decisions of the First-Tier scalesofjusticeImmigration Tribunal and it also hears Judicial Review cases.

In a recent case, Mr CMG Ockelton, who is Vice-President of the Upper Tribunal, said some remarkably kind words about Home Office Presenting Officers (who present cases on behalf of the Home Office). Of the HOPO in question Mr Ockelton said that he had “… with the fairness which Presenting Officers always attempt to apply, drawn our attention to an important guidance document.”

Evidently the HOPO was in this case very helpful to the Tribunal, but we thought that the “always” was a bit worrying. Has Mr Ockelton fettered his thinking? Does this exhibit true judicial impartiality? We will wait and see if there are any developments about this.
