Immigration - Appeal - Reasons for decision - Asylum - Applicant claiming persecution for imputed political opinion - Secretary of State refusing claim for asylum - Special adjudicator dismissing appeal against refusal - Secretary of State certifying claim not falling within Geneva Convention - Whether error of law in certification - Asylum and Immigration Appeal Act 1993, sch 2, para 5(4)(a).
The question whether a claim showed a fear of persecution, for the purposes of para5(4)(a) of Sch2 to the Asylum and Immigration Appeal Act 1993, depended solely on the content of the clam. A claim which asserted that the asylum seeker had a fear of persecution based on facts which, if true, would involve Convention grounds was a claim which 'shows a fear of persecution' on such grounds.
