22 May 2017

The Court of Appeal has confirmed that when an EEA application is refused the appeal can only be about whether or not the decision was correct under EEA law.

Human rights issues cannot be raised at the appeal, unless a separate human rights application has been made under UK law, or if the Home Office issue a ‘section 120 statement’, requiring the applicant to state any other reasons they might have for wanting to stay in the UK.
