Court of Appeal Ruling - COA infringes human rights

Post by Kayalami » Wed May 23, 2007 10:57 pm

The Court of Appeal has ruled that the COA process infringes on human rights as it effectively labels the marriage process thereof as potentially sham without any conclusive proof of such. I expect the Home Office to either scrap the COA scheme or implement it for all marriages no later than the 3rd quarter of 2007. If the former the lost revenue will act as an incentive to increase fees across the board even higher than I initially expect in the 1st quarter of 2008 pursuant to the commencement of the new points scheme.

Rules to stop 'sham' marriages unlawful ... sham24.xml

Tough rules to stop illegal immigrants using sham marriages to get in to the country were declared unlawful by the Appeal Court yesterday.

Judges said regulations brought in two years ago to block thousands of alleged ''marriages of convenience'' breached human rights laws.

Hundreds of couples who say they have been prevented from marrying may now try to claim compensation.
