Immigration - Leave to enter - Refugee - Asylum - Internal relocation reasonable alternative to asylum - Asylum Immigration Tribunal reversing immigration judge's decision that internal relocation option not available to claimant - Whether evidential basis for immigration judge's decision - Whether appeal tribunal in error in failing to consider reasonableness of relocation.
The Asylum and Immigration Tribunal had been entitled to reverse the immigration judge's decision, allowing the claimant's appeal against the refusal of asylum, since there had been no evidential basis for the immigration judge's conclusion that if the claimant relocated to another part of Guinea, her whereabouts would come to the attention of her family, who would kill her. The issue of the reasonableness of internal relocation had not been raised below, and it could not be raised now, on what was an appeal from the tribunal on a point of law.
