UPPER TRIBUNAL JUDGE O’CONNOR
Mr Tariq Idrees
Secretary of State for the Home Department
NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL AND
REASONS FOR THE TRIBUNAL GIVING CONSENT
1. The appellant is a citizen of Pakistan. He appealed to the First-tier Tribunal against a decision of the Secretary of State of 6 March 2013. The First-tier Tribunal dismissed this appeal in a determination of 28 August 2013. Permission to appeal to the First-tier Tribunal decision was granted on 20 September 2013.
2. By way of a letter to the Upper Tribunal dated 11 October 2013 the appellant’s legal representatives state as follows:
“Our client has informed us that he wishes to withdraw his appeal and will not pursue the matter any further. He submitted an application for leave to remain whilst the current appeal matter was pending and wishes to pursue that matter. Please amend your files accordingly and acknowledge receipt of this letter.”
3. Consent of the Upper Tribunal is required for a party to withdraw its case. Having carefully considered the facts of this appeal as a whole, and observing that (i) the appellant is legally represented and (ii) the Secretary of State was successful before the First-tier Tribunal, I give consent to the appellant to withdraw his case.
4. Accordingly with my consent, and pursuant to rule 17(5) of the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008, this appeal is recorded as “Withdrawn with the consent of the Upper Tribunal”. This is a Notice pursuant to rule 17(5) to inform the parties that the appellant’s case is withdrawn.
5. The effect of the appellant’s case being withdrawn from the Upper Tribunal is that the proceedings before the Upper Tribunal are at an end. There is no appeal before the Upper Tribunal and the First-tier Tribunal’s decision shall stand.
