Fast Track Appeal system suspended

26.06.15 | |

The Court of Appeal has lifted the stay on the Order made by Nicol J declaring that the Fast Track Appeals Rules are ultra vires and granting an order quashing them.


This means that those orders take immediate effect and that from now onwards until any appeal by the Lord Chancellor is successful, no asylum appeals can be determined through the Fast Track Appeals system. It also means that all those individuals whose appeals have been determined under the Fast Track Appeals system may challenge the determinations of those appeals on the basis that they were decided under a system which was ultra vires and structurally unfair.


Charlotte Kilroy was instructed by Migrant Law Project on behalf of Detention Action.
