On Tuesday 10th July the Supreme Court will hear the appeal in Rhuppiah v SSHD. The Court will look at:

1. The meaning of precarious in s.117B(5) of the Nationality Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 (the "2002 Act");

2. The weight to be given to private life established at a time when the appellant’s immigration status was precarious when conducting the balancing exercise under art.8; and

3. The weight to be given to financial independence and proficiency in English when conducting the balancing exercise under art.8.

Muhunthan Paramesvaran, is instructed by Ms. Rhuppiah. Hugh Southey QC of Matrix Chambers and David Sellwood of Garden Court chambers appear on her behalf. The hearing can be viewed on Supreme Court TV. We wish all involved the best of luck in this important case.
