Immigration Act 2014

Section 18: Review of certain deportation decisions by Special Immigration Appeals Commission

99.Section 18 inserts a new section 2E into the Special Immigration Appeals Commission Act 1997. This allows the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (“SIAC”) to review a decision which has been certified under section 97 or 97A(1) of the 2002 Act (certification on grounds of national security etc) in cases where there is no right of appeal in respect of the decision. In cases where there is a right of appeal, the appeal would go to SIAC under section 2 of the SIAC Act 1997. This new provision is necessary because the changes to section 82 of the 2002 Act mean that in future there may be some cases where there is no right of appeal against a decision that has been certified under section 97 or 97A, and judicial review will be the only remedy. It is more appropriate for judicial reviews in national security cases to be conducted by SIAC.
