DETERMINATION AND REASONS
1. This determination follows on from:
(i) The decision of FtT Judge Bradshaw, ref PA/04157/2016, promulgated on 11 August 2018, dismissing the appellant’s previous appeal.
(ii) The respondent’s decision dated 19 August 2019, refusing further submissions.
(iii) The appellant’s grounds of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal.
(iv) The decision of FtT Judge McLaren, promulgated on 11 December 2019.
(v) The appellant’s grounds of appeal to the UT, stated in the application for permission to appeal dated 13 December 2019 (6 paragraphs, 11 pages).
(vi) The grant of permission by FtT Judge Keane, dated 31 January 2020.
(vii) The UT’s note and directions dated 6 October 2021.
(viii) My decision on error of law, promulgated on 27 January 2022, setting aside the decision of Judge McLaren, and giving directions.
2. As matters then stood, it was not obvious, on such findings as had been made, that the appellant qualified for any form of leave.
3. The case was to be relisted for fresh decision, based on standing primary findings, once updated country guidance had been published.
4. SMO & KSP (Civil status documentation; article 15) Iraq CG  UKUT 00110 (IAC) was added to the UTIAC country guidance case list on 26 April 2022.
5. Mr Mullen accepted that, as matters stand, the appellant is Kurdish; he would not be returned anywhere other than Baghdad; there is an undisturbed finding that he does not have a CSID; he is not in a position to obtain an INID; and he qualifies, by reference to SMO, for humanitarian protection.
6. The appeal, as first brought to the FtT, is allowed on humanitarian protection grounds.
7. Anonymity has been discontinued.
