Permission has been granted in the case of R (on the app of Darboe) v SSHD [2009] EWHC 3100 (Admin) to challenge the inclusion of men in Gambia on the s.94 ‘White List’ of countries for which it is presumed any asylum claims are clearly unfounded and therefore only attract an out of country appeal. Good work by the advocate, Mr Mustkim.

Interestingly, the case was heard in the District Registry in Cardiff by a Deputy High Court Judge. Fears that the regionalisation of the Administrative Court may lead to timidity may be overstated.
