Decision & Reasons Promulgated
On 30 August 2019
On 5 September 2019
UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE LANE
(ANONYMITY DIRECTION NOT MADE)
Entry Clearance Officer - SHEFO
For the Appellant: Mr Greer
For the Respondent: Mr Diwnycz, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
DECISION AND REASONS
1. The appellants are citizens of Bhutan. They appealed against a decision of the Entry Clearance Officer dated 13 September 2018 refusing them entry clearance to United Kingdom as the wife and daughter of Mr Sisr [H], the sponsor. The First-tier Tribunal, in a decision promulgated on 6 June 2019, dismissed the appeal. The appellants now appeal, with permission, to the Upper Tribunal.
2. Mr Diwnycz, who appeared for the Entry Clearance Officer before the Upper Tribunal, told me that respondent accepted that the judge had before him in the papers provided by the appellant a copy of relevant English language test results. Moreover, it was clear from the papers that the sponsor is a refugee who is unable to enjoy family life with the appellants in Bhutan. Mr Diwnycz said that the First-tier Tribunal, had it considered the relevant evidence, should have allowed the appeal.
3. I agree. I am aware that this was a paper case but it is apparent that the judge has overlooked evidence which should have led him to allow the appeal.
Notice of Decision
The decision of the First-tier Tribunal is set aside. I have remade the decision. The appeal of the appellants against the decision of the Entry Clearance Officer dated 13 September 2018 is allowed on human rights grounds (Article 8 ECHR).
