Maria Gherman has, unusually, been granted permission to bring Judicial Review proceedings twice in the same case. The Applicant, FF, applied for entry clearance as Tier 1 Entrepreneur Migrant under the points-based system; his application was refused under §245DB(f) of the Immigration Rules, as the entry clearance officer did not believe that the Claimant was a genuine entrepreneur. Maria drafted grounds seeking judicial review on which permission was granted.
The Secretary of State subsequently re-interviewed FF, remade the decision and refused again. Maria again drafted robust grounds seeking judicial review on which permission was granted once more.
Maria Gherman was instructed by Amer Rahman of Farani Taylor Solicitors.
