Asylum: Kosovo

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment she has made of the safety of Kosovo for the purposes of making determinations on asylum applications; and if she will make a statement. (222732)

As with all other asylum claims, Kosovan claims are considered very carefully on their individual merits against the background of the latest country information in accordance with our international obligations. We closely monitor conditions in Kosovo and those individuals able to demonstrate a need for international protection will be granted asylum or a different form of leave as appropriate. Kosovan nationals who have been found not to need international protection, and who have no right to remain in the UK but refuse to leave voluntarily, are liable to be removed.
