Over the last year a spate of cases have successfully challenged the Detained Fast Track Process (DFT) in the UK and have resulted in its temporary suspension. This article will consider the potential future impact of this case law on the DFT. It will discuss whether this case law provides any arguments which may be used to challenge the concept of the DFT and thus the underlying assumptions in Saadi. It will also consider the changes that will have to be made to the ‘new’ DFT in order for it to be compatible with this case law such as the introduction of case management hearings, the extension of timescales and tackling the culture of disbelief in the asylum process.
