Choudhrey v Immigration Appeal Tribunal: Admn 1 Aug 2001

The applicant sought to review refusal of his request to appeal in turn the refusal of his request for asylum as an Ahmadi from Pakistan. He had twice been assaulted by a non-government racist group. There was legislation having the effect of discriminating against members of the applicant’s religion, but the adjudicator found no government persecution. She also found that he had been able to live in peace with his brother elsewhere. The treatment was found not been sufficient to constitute a well-founded fear of persecution. The Adjudicator had set the standard for persecution too high. It was not capable of definition, but need not be fear for his life as implied. This was a sufficient misdirection in law to require the decision to be quashed.
