Sudan: Asylum Seekers

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 29 October 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Home Office received any complaints from lawyers of Darfuri asylum seekers with active cases and who had been interviewed by a Sudanese embassy official in Home Office facilities in March or April 2008. [HL5682]

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will publish the content of the disclaimers allegedly signed by Darfuri asylum seekers in March and April 2008, saying they agreed to be interviewed by a Sudanese official. [HL5683]

No disclaimers were used or signed by Darfuri asylum seekers in relation to the documentation interviews that took place between March and April 2007. A standard bio-data form was used where the applicants confirmed their bio-data. Publication of the content of the bio-data forms would breach confidentiality.
