UAZ and AJB, petitioners

Immigration – Asylum seekers – Fresh claims – Ahmadis. Court of Session: Granting a judicial review petition by two failed Pakistani asylum seekers, followers of the Ahmadi faith, who challenged decisions that their further submissions did not amount to fresh claims, the court held that the respondent had not shown by her decision letters that she had applied anxious scrutiny to her consideration of the petitioners' claims, both in her use of previous decisions without proper recognition that the Immigration Judge's findings in those decisions were focused on a different test emerging from different Country Guidance, and in her failure properly to consider the new evidence, in particular a statement from the President for Scotland of the Amadiyya Community.
