Immigration - Asylum seeker - Appeal - Appeal against refusal of asylum claim by Secretary of State - Asylum and Immigration Tribunal dismissing claimant's claim - Claimant applying for reconsideration - Immigration judge holding Iranian authorities only interested closing claimant's buisness and not in pursuing him for adultery - AIT dismissing appeal - Whether AIT erring.
In the instant case, the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal had been entitled, on the evidence, to draw an inference that the religious authorities in Iran had been interested in only bringing about the closure of the claimant's business and not in pursuing the claimant for adultery. Accordingly, his appeal against his unsuccessful application for asylum was dismissed.
