Four members of 1 Crown Office Row have appeared in the Court of Appeal this week, in three different cases.

Angus McCullough KC is leading a team of counsel instructed by Baker McKenzie, appearing pro bono for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in an appeal concerning the UK’s scheme to transfer asylum-seekers to Rwanda. Natasha Barnes is instructed as junior counsel for the Secretary of State for the Home Department in the same appeal, which is being heard by a Court of Appeal consisting of the Lord Chief Justice with the Master of the Rolls, and the Vice-President of the Court of Appeal Civil Division heard over 4 days between 24 and 27 April 2023.
Neil Sheldon KC is instructed on behalf of the Home Secretary an appeal from the Special Immigration Appeals Commission. The appeal is concerned with the decision of the Secretary of State to deprive a woman who travelled to ISIL-controlled Syria of her British nationality, preventing her return to the UK.
