Precious and Florence Mhango are originally from Malawi
A woman and her 10-year-old daughter have won the latest round in their legal fight to avoid deportation.
Florence Mhango and daughter Precious, originally from Malawi, succeeded in an application to have a full judicial review into their asylum case.
Supporters say they could be separated if returned to Africa, with Precious at risk of possible genital mutilation.
The pair have spent most of their seven years in the UK living in the Cranhill area of Glasgow.
They narrowly avoided deportation last November after being removed from a flight at Heathrow pending further legal action.
They were returned to Yarls Wood detention centre in Bedfordshire, where they had been moved from Dungavel detention centre in Lanarkshire, before being released to return north.
Glasgow SNP MSP Anne McLaughlin, who has campaigned for the family's release, said: "I am relieved and delighted with the outcome of this renewal hearing. They will now proceed to a full hearing and I am confident they can win that.
"However I would now appeal in the strongest terms to the Home Secretary, Alan Johnson and ask him not to put them through that."
