Home Office found to have unlawfully detained man for 13 months

A Judge at Central London County Court has found that the Home Office unlawfully detained a Zimbabwean man between 30 November 2007 and 14 January 2009. The Judge found that from 14 May 2008, there was no realistic prospect of removing our client due to official Government policy to suspend removals in view of the violence and dire humanitarian circumstances in Zimbabwe following the March 2008 elections. Jed Pennington acted for the Claimant.
