Immigration Asylum seeker. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, found that where the claimant citizen of Sri Lanka had demonstrated that there were different facts applicable to him, than had applied at the time of the original dismissal of his immigration appeal, he could not successfully get around the original findings of fact that he was of no interest, and no continuing interest, to the Sri Lankan authorities. There had to be, and there had to be maintained, a clear distinction between a case in which it was said fresh significant evidence had emerged and a case in which an opportunity was taken by way of that assertion to seek to undermine original findings of fact.
