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  UKIAT 00253 and SC (Double Jeopardy - WC Considered) China v. Secretary of State for the Home Department CG  UKAIT 00007 are no longer factually accurate, and SC should no longer be treated as country guidance.
