Immigration - Asylum seeker - Appeal - Asylum and Immigration Tribunal not giving reasons for rejecting evidence relied on by asylum seeker - Whether tribunal in error.
Where evidence relied on by the appellant supported the gravamen of her case that her father, intent on having her undergo female genital mutilation, would pursue her if she was returned to Nairobi, and also dealt with risks to her life in Nairobi quite apart from her father, it had been incumbent on the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal to state, at least in outline, why it had rejected that evidence; it was not sufficient to let the point go in silence and by implication.
