Amanda Jones, instructed by Quality Orion Solicitors, represented Mr O-A and has been successful in a Judicial review.
Mr. O-A has held British Passports, renewed regularly, since 1977. On his most recent application for renewal, the Passport Office refused to issue a passport, saying that they were not satisfied that Mr O-A who has held passports for 40 years is the baby O-A born in London in the 1950s. Mr. O-A was granted permission to seek Judicial Review, and on the morning of the full hearing, a consent order was signed at the Royal Courts of Justice.
The Home Office agreed to issue a British passport within 4 weeks, and to pay the Claimant’s costs.
