[2008] UKHL 31

The Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 s.31 should not be read as limited to offences attributable to a refugee's illegal entry into or presence in the United Kingdom, but should provide immunity from the imposition of criminal penalties for offences attributable to a refugee's attempt to leave the UK in the continuing course of a flight from persecution even after a short stopover in transit.

HL (Lord Bingham of Cornhill, Lord Hope of Craighead, Lord Rodger of Earlsferry, Lord Carswell, Lord Mance)
