Comments Heard at Field House on 21-23 January 2008. The decisions in WC (No Risk of Double Punishment) China v. Secretary of State for the Home Department [2004] UKIAT 00253 and SC (Double Jeopardy - WC Considered) China v. Secretary of State for the Home Department CG [2006] UKAIT 00007 are no longer factually accurate, and SC should no longer be treated as country guidance. The Court of Appeal (England and Wales) dismissed a subsequent appeal: [2009] EWCA Civ 81. Guidance subsequently confirmed by the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) in YF (double jeopardy - JC confirmed) China CG [2011] UKUT 32 (IAC).
