British Overseas Citizens - Can they be 'Stateless'?

06 July 2018 Category: Blog McGill & Co Solicitors

In our most recent contribution to Free Movement Blog, John Vassilou discusses what it means to be a British overseas citizen, and how it is possible that this status could lead such persons to being 'stateless'. The issue has most recently brought to light in the recent case of Teh v Secretary of State for the Home Department[2018] EWHC 1586 (Admin), one of many unsuccessful cases brought by Malaysian citizens.

John discusses why BOC status exists, how it can be attained and whether in fact it has any real practical use. You can read the full post here: https://www.freemovement.org.uk/can-a-british-overseas-citizen-be-stateless/
