Sudan: Darfur

Volume 707: debated on Thursday 12 February 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Answer by Lord West of Spithead on 9 July 2008 (Official Report, House of Lords, col. 751) that the Government would defer enforcing the return of non-Arab Darfuri asylum seekers to Sudan pending the outcome of a country guidance case, whether they will continue to defer until a new country guidance case is selected and heard. [HL1276]

Alternative cases to consider the safety of return issue are currently being considered, and the adjourned hearing is expected to be relisted within the next few months. Returns of non-Arab Darfuris to Sudan will continue to be suspended pending the outcome of the case.
