AM (Belarus) v Secretary of State for the Home Department

Immigration – Asylum. The appellant was a national of Belarus, whose principal claim to remain in the United Kingdom was based on his allegation that he had a well-founded fear of persecution if he were to be returned to Belarus, on account of his political opinions and activities there some 15 years ago. The First-tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) (FTT) dismissed his claim. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held, inter alia, that there had been no error of law in the way in which the FTT had approached its task or in its reasoning or conclusions.
