R(Ozoemene) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2013] EWHC 2167


Challenge to the SSHD's refusal to grant British passports to three Nigerian nationals. The court held that it was not for SSHD to establish the claimants' case for them, but where the claimants had produced documents which were not obvious forgeries it was incumbent on SSHD to take all reasonable steps to find out whether they were genuine or not.
