AM (Zimbabwe) (Appellant) v Secretary of State for the Home Department (Respondent) [2020] UKSC 17

This week, I am talking about mental health, and starting with a recent case that made all the difference – AM Zimbabwe.

Previous mental health cases had found that individuals had to be at risk of imminent death at the point of the proposed removal to a third country in order to successfully resist removal. however, AM (Zimbabwe), found that imminence of death is no longer required.

I’ll be laying out the other historic cases such as D, N, Pretty, Bensaid and Paposhvili in the next few posts, but for more info on the AM Zimbabwe case, you can read the full case here: https://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKSC/2020/17.html
