LB (Article 3, Monrovia, Security) Liberia CG: IAT 28 Apr 2004

The claimant appealed against a determination of an Adjudicator, who dismissed his appeal on asylum and human rights grounds against the Respondent’s decision to give directions for his removal to Liberia. The Respondent had disputed the Appellant’s nationality, but the Adjudicator accepted that the Appellant was a Liberian national. Given the terms of the grounds of application and the terms in which permission to appeal was granted, the issues were whether the Appellant’s removal to Monrovia would be in breach of his rights under Articles 2 or 3, bearing in mind the general security situation in Monrovia and the humanitarian conditions in Monrovia.
