Immigration Law Update: Naturalisation: R (on the application of Arunothayan) v The Secretary of State for the Home Department [2015] EWHC 206

Read the judgment here.

The C renewed his permission application, challenging the D's refusal of his naturalisation application. As the D took into account the C's asylum interview and other submissions made, it was not unreasonable of her not to offer a further interview.  The court also found it to be clear that the D was entitled to find that the C's admitted support for the LTTE and their cause was sufficient to "cast serious doubt" on his good character.  As the claimant and his family all have ILR in the UK, there is nothing in the D's decision that is detrimental to the interests of his children.  Permission refused.
