HA (Conduct of hearing: evidence required) Somalia  UKAIT 00018
Date of hearing: 5 March 2009
Date Determination notified: 27 May 2009
|Secretary of State for the Home Department||RESPONDENT|
Where a party who was represented at the hearing seeks reconsideration on the basis of the way it was conducted, reconsideration will not normally be granted without evidence on the point in question by way of a statement of truth from the representative, to which should be attached either a copy of any note on the point made by the representative at or near the time of the hearing, or an explanation of why no such note is available.
The judge's typed record of proceedings makes it quite clear that the presenting officer did concede this, and Mr Kandola did not argue otherwise before me. There is no need to say any more about this case than that the judge's decision is upheld.
a) a photocopy of a contemporaneous note by their representative; or
b) an explanation as to why no contemporaneous (or near-contemporaneous) note is available.
Senior Immigration Judge Freeman
