Heard at Glasgow
Decision and Reasons Promulgated

DEPUTY UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE DEANS
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
(No anonymity direction made)
For the Appellant: Mr A Govan, Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
For the Respondent: Mr A Caskie, Advocate, instructed by Latta & Co, Solicitors
DECISION AND REASONS
1. This is an appeal by the Secretary of State against a decision by Judge of the First-tier Tribunal Mc Manus. The First-tier Tribunal allowed an appeal by Mahabad [M] (hereinafter referred to as "the claimant"), who is a national of Iraq.
2. The grant of permission to appeal states that the First-tier Tribunal found the claimant credible as to her history and fear of harm but there was no real risk of persecution on return. The appeal was allowed under Articles 2 and 3 based upon the claimant's lack of a CSID card and her inability to obtain one on return. Nevertheless at paragraph 46 of the decision the Judge of the First-tier Tribunal stated that the appellant was entitled to refugee status. This was arguably an error of law as on the facts found the claimant would be entitled to humanitarian protection.
3. At the hearing before me Mr Caskie informed me that an amended decision had been issued on 12th November 2018 by the Judge of the First-tier Tribunal correcting the error identified in the grant of permission to appeal. Copies of the amended decision were produced. The amended decision made it clear that the claimant was entitled to humanitarian protection.
4. I am satisfied that the arguable error described in the grant of permission to appeal has been rectified by the issuing of the amended decision under rule 31 of the Procedure Rules. Accordingly there is no error of law in the amended decision of 12th November 2018 of the First-tier Tribunal.
5. The making of the decision of the First-tier Tribunal did not involve the making of an error on a point of law.
6. The decision allowing the appeal shall stand.
The First-tier Tribunal made a direction for anonymity. I have not been asked to continue this direction and I see no reason of substance for doing so.
