Eminent parliamentarians have lost a Supreme Court battle over Home Secretary Theresa May's decision to ban a dissident Iranian politician from Britain.

 

An appeal by the cross-party group of 15 MPs and peers, led by Liberal Democrat Lord Carlile, was rejected in a majority ruling by justices at the UK's highest court.

 

They had previously lost actions in the High Court and Court of Appeal over the exclusion of Maryam Rajavi.

 

Mrs Rajavi, who has been excluded from the United Kingdom since 1997, also unsuccessfully appealed alongside the parliamentarians against decisions made by the Home Secretary to maintain her exclusion.

 

The Home Secretary stated that lifting the exclusion would cause significant damage to the UK's interests in relation to Iran and place British people and property in Iran and the region at risk.

 

Both the High Court and Court of Appeal held that the exclusion was "justified and proportionate".

 

The Supreme Court dismissed the appeal by a majority of 4-1.
