DECISION OF THE UPPER TRIBUNAL
PURSUANT TO RULE 40(3)(a) OF
THE TRIBUNAL PROCEDURE (UPPER TRIBUNAL) RULES 2008
1. The appellant, an Iranian citizen, appeals with permission against the decision of the First-tier Tribunal dismissing his appeal against the respondent's decision to refuse him international protection under the Refugee Convention, humanitarian protection, or leave to remain in the United Kingdom on human rights grounds.
2. In a decision on the papers on 25 April 2019, DUTJ Storey granted permission to appeal for the following reasons:
" There is a problem not just of brevity but about substance in relation to the Judge's reasons for finding the appellant's claim not credible. it is not asserted that the appellant's account lacked consistency, internal or external, or that it lacked detail.
It appears the only reasons relied on were (i) that the death certificate was unreliable; and (ii) that it was not plausible that she had remained in Iran for over a year without any interest shown in her by the authorities.
These are arguably deficient as an assessment in the round of credibility. The grounds are arguable."
3. By a letter dated 16 May 2019, Ms Willocks-Briscoe for the respondent indicated that the respondent 'does not oppose the appellant's application for permission to appeal and invites the Tribunal to remit the matter to the First-tier Tribunal'.
4. It is thus common ground that the First-tier Tribunal made a material error of law in its decision and both parties agree that this is a case where the decision of the First-tier Tribunal must be set aside and remade.
5. I am satisfied that the decision of the First-tier Tribunal can properly be set aside without a reasoned decision notice.
6. Pursuant to rule 40(3) of the Tribunal Procedure (Upper Tribunal) Rules 2008, no reasons (or further reasons) will be provided unless, within 7 days of the sending out of this decision, either party indicates in writing that they do not consent to the appeal being disposed of in the manner set out at (5) above.
7. If in consequence an oral hearing is required, but the outcome is the same, the Upper Tribunal will consider making an order for wasted costs.
8. My decision is as follows:
The making of the previous decision involved the making of an error on a point of law. I set aside the decision of the First-tier Tribunal, with no findings of fact or credibility preserved.
The decision in this appeal will be remade in the First-tier Tribunal on the first available date after 14 days from the sending out of this decision.
