The Court of Appeal has effectively suspended the Detained Fast Track asylum processing factory. The High Court recently found the appeal process unlawful but granted the Home Office a stay on the effect of the judgment. The Court of Appeal has overturned that stay, meaning that the High Court judgment on the illegality of the system has effect. It is hard to imagine the Home Office continuing with fast track appeals in those circumstances.
There’s a good piece by Detention Action on their website about the latest development.
