Lalljee v United Kingdom (App No 10556/83) (8 E.H.R.R. 44) July 1985:
While the subjection of British Overseas Citizens to immigration control for entry to the U.K., through limted quotas or otherwise, does not constitute racial discrimination or degrading treatment, the facts of a particular case may raise an issue of degrading treatment. However, there was no indication that the applicant was refused permission to enter the U.K. for racist motives and there were no difficulties in his remaining in Pakistan. While applicant's hopes may have been falsely raised by the special voucher scheme, this does not constitute degrading treatment.
No facts were provided, as they emerge sufficiently from the statement of the Law.
