THE IMMIGRATION ACTS
Decided under rule 34
Decision & Reasons Promulgated
On 5 August 2020
UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE MACLEMAN
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
DETERMINATION AND REASONS (P)
1. FtT Judge Rose dismissed the appellant's appeal by a decision promulgated on 20 February 2020.
2. On 31 March 2020, FtT Judge Fisher granted permission to appeal to the UT, because at  Judge Rose took section 8 of the 2004 Act as the starting point. There was also concern over , where the judge said he would have expected independent verification of documents from Bangladesh.
3. In submissions dated 10 June 2020, the respondent accepts that the FtT materially erred in law on section 8, because although that was a relevant factor, it was not the starting point.
4. The concession is correctly made.
5. The decision of the FtT is set aside. It stands only as a record of what was said at the hearing.
6. There is a presumption that the UT will proceed to remake decisions, of which parties are reminded in directions issued with the grant of permission. However, the nature of the case is such that it is appropriate under section 12 of the 2007 Act, and under Practice Statement 7.2, to remit to the FtT for an entirely fresh hearing.
7. The member(s) of the FtT chosen to consider the case are not to include Judge Rose.
8. The anonymity direction made by the FtT is preserved at this stage.
9. The date of this determination is to be taken as the date it is issued to parties.
