The UK is ordered to return a gay woman after wrongly deporting her to Uganda. The 25-year-old, who was deported five years ago, was told she could return in a landmark court ruling. Some suggest this could open the door to thousands of similar challenges, according to the Independent. The lesbian, who arrived in 2011 and claimed asylum on the basis of her sexuality, was refused asylum in 2013. She was removed on the grounds the Home Office did not believe she was gay. But now, a High Court judge has ruled the government’s decision to refuse her claim was reached by an unfair process. The judge also said the government did not give her sufficient time to obtain evidence to support her case. The fast-track system, which aimed to make asylum decisions within two weeks, had a 99% rejection rate.
