YC, petitioner

Immigration – Asylum – Fear of persecution – Fresh claim – Expert evidence. Court of Session: Refusing a petition by a Chinese national who challenged a decision that her further submissions did not amount to a fresh asylum and human rights claim on the basis of her religion as a Jehovah's witness and breach of Chinese family planning policy by having two children, the court held that the respondent's decision that the petitioner would not be entitled to rely, in support of her own hypothetical appeal, on evidence given by an expert witness in another case, was one that she was entitled to reach and not therefore unreasonable or irrational.
