Sudan: Darfur

Volume 707: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when and in which forum the Government's current policy of returns to Sudan will be reassessed, in light of the recent cancellation of the Darfur guidance case. [HL1275]

The case listed as country guidance by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) on 16 to 19 February has been conceded on its particular facts. Alternative cases to consider as country guidance are currently being considered by the AIT and the adjourned hearing is expected to be re-listed within the next few months. Returns of non-Arab Darfuris to Sudan will continue to be suspended pending the outcome of the case.
