ZY, petitioner

Immigration – Asylum – Human rights: Refusing a judicial review petition in which a Pakistani citizen challenged a decision to refuse his asylum and human rights claims and to certify them as 'clearly unfounded', the court rejected the contention that in considering his partner's claim in 2010 and his claim in 2014 to be 'similar', the Secretary of State left out of account relevant events in the intervening period, notably the birth of the couple's child in 2011, and it was satisfied that the Secretary of State was entitled to certify the petitioner's asylum claim as 'clearly unfounded', there being no prospect of a decision maker, on any legitimate view, concluding that he was at risk of facing persecution falling within the terms of the Refugee Convention.
