United Kingdom: Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC)

The Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC) is a superior court of record created by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997. It deals with appeals in cases where the Secretary of State for the Home Department exercises statutory powers to deport, or exclude, someone from the UK on national security grounds, or for other public interest reasons. SIAC also hears appeals against decisions to deprive persons of citizenship status, under the British Nationality Act 1981 (as amended). The presumption is that SIAC hearings are heard in open court and the public and press can attend. The judge can decide to hear evidence in closed sessions. Most of the cases before SIAC are under anonymity orders so the individuals cannot be named. Appellants can apply to SIAC to waive their right to anonymity. Onward appeal from SIAC is to the Court of Appeal on points of law. Website: www.siac.tribunals.gov.uk/
