  • Public / Administrative

    Whilst practising in Cardiff, Tarlun frequently attended Newport Immigration Tribunal and successfully applied for bail on behalf of foreign nationals held in UK detention centres.

    Tarlun also worked with “Asylum Justice”, a charitable trust that provides free legal services to asylum seekers and refugees.

    Tarlun represented a young Syrian national who faced deportation by the Home Office who believed he was Egyptian. On appeal, Tarlun persuaded the First-Tier Tribunal that the decision was wrong and the deportation order was overruled.

    Tarlun successfully challenged the Home Office’s decision to refuse a human rights claim brought by a Pakistani national. The Applicant was married to a British citizen; had been residing in the UK for five years and assisted his wife in caring for her disabled brother. The Employment Judge allowed the Appeal on the basis that deportation amounted to breach of Article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights (right to private and family life).
