UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE LANE
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
(ANONYMITY DIRECTION MADE)
For the Appellant: Mr McVeety, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
For the Respondent: Ms Choudhry, Nebula Law Solicitors
DECISION AND REASONS
1. I shall refer to the appellant as the 'respondent' and the respondent as the 'appellant', as they appeared respectively before the First-tier Tribunal. The appellant was born in 1972 and is a citizen of Iraq. By a decision dated 12 July 2019, the Secretary of State refused his application for international protection. The appellant appealed to the First-tier Tribunal which in a decision promulgated on 26 November 2019, allowed the appeal.
2. The parties agree that the judge erred in law. The judge should have allowed the appeal on Article 15 (c) (humanitarian protection) grounds and not on asylum grounds. Both parties agree that the decision should be set aside and remade by the Upper Tribunal dismissing the asylum appeal but allowing the appeal on humanitarian protection grounds.
Notice of Decision
The decision of the First-tier Tribunal is set aside. I have remade the decision. The appeal is dismissed on asylum grounds. The appeal is allowed on humanitarian protection grounds.
