Upper Tribunal Judge Chalkley
(ANONYMITY DIRECTION MADe)
For the Appellant: Mr Rashid Ahmed
For the Respondent: Mr Tan, a Senior Home Office Presenting Officer
REASONS FOR FINDING AN ERROR OF LAW
1. The appellant is a citizen of Pakistan who made application to the Secretary of State for leave to remain in the United Kingdom on the basis of his Article 8 rights under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The respondent refused to grant the appellant leave on 10 th January 2019 and the appellant appealed to the First-tier Tribunal. His appeal was heard in Manchester on 16 th April, 2019 by First-tier Tribunal Judge Mark Davies.
2. The judge concluded that there was no family life between the appellant and his daughter and then went on in the alternative to find that if he was wrong in that the decision of the respondent was proportionate. The determination was challenged on behalf of the appellant on the basis of the decisions in Berrehab v the Netherlands  11 EHRR 322 and Gul v Switzerland  22 EHRR 92.
3. It was agreed between the representatives who appeared before me today that the determination could not stand and must be set aside. I agree.
4. I set aside the determination of Immigration Judge Mark Davies and remit this appeal for hearing afresh by the First-tier Tribunal, given that effectively the appellant has been denied a fair hearing. Two hours should be allowed for the hearing and a Punjabi interpreter will be required.
