THE IMMIGRATION ACTS
Heard at Field House
Decision and Reasons Promulgated
On 21st February 2018
On 23 February 2018
UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE COKER
SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
(anonymity direction not made)
For the Appellant: Mr E Tufan, senior Home Office Presenting Officer
For the Respondent: Mr J Metzer instructed by Huneewoth solicitors
DETERMINATION AND REASONS
1. The SSHD was granted permission to appeal the decision of First-tier Tribunal judge Hanley who, for reasons in his decision promulgated on 8 December 2016, allowed the respondents' appeal under the Immigration Rules and on human rights grounds.
2. Deputy Upper Tribunal Judge Harris adjourned the hearing before him on 14th August 2014. The appeal came before me on 3rd January 2018 for case management and I directed it be set down for hearing both in relation to whether there was an error of law and, if there was an error of law, to proceed with substantive remaking of the decision.
3. Before me on 21st February 2018 both parties agreed there was an error of law in the decision of First-tier Tribunal Judge Hanley - EX.1. does not apply. I set aside the decision to be remade.
4. Mr Tufan provided the Tribunal and Mr Metzer with a copy of a letter dated 19th February 2018 sending [NN]'s certificate of registration as a British Citizen.
5. Mr Tufan also brought to my attention Home Office Guidance on Appendix FM and SF and others (Guidance, post 2014 Act) Albania  UKUT 120 (IAC).
6. Taking these matters into consideration I remake the decision regarding Alvina [N] and [AN] and allow their appeals against the decision of the SSHD to refuse their human rights claim. There is no longer jurisdiction to hear the appeal of [NN] because, as a British Citizen, she cannot be removed from the UK but if and in so far as her appeal remains outstanding, her appeal is also allowed.
7. Mr Metzer initially sought an order for costs and then amended this to state he would seek instructions on whether to make an application for costs.
8. I directed that if Ms [N] and her two children wish to make an application for costs, such application is to be made in writing, copied to Senior Presenting Officer Peter Deller, by 4pm on Wednesday 28th February 2018. I shall thereafter review the file and decide what further directions, if any, are required.
The making of the decision of the First-tier Tribunal did involve the making of an error on a point of law.
I set aside the decision and remake the decision by allowing the appeals of Ms Alvina Naidoo and her two children against the SSHD.
If Ms [N] and her two children wish to make an application for costs, such application is to be made in writing, copied to Senior Presenting Officer Peter Deller, by 4pm on Wednesday 28th February 2018. I shall thereafter review the file and decide what further directions, if any, are required.
