Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission issues challenge to Illegal Migration Act 2023

The NIHRC has issued a claim for judicial review, which argues that the Illegal Migration Act 2023 is in breach of Article 2 of the Windsor Framework and must, to that extent, be disapplied. It also seeks a declaration that various aspects of the Act are incompatible with the European Convention on Human Rights.

Adam Straw KC represents the Commission, leading Yaaser Vanderman of Landmark Chambers, instructed by the Commission.
