Potentially useful fresh asylum claim decision holding that two Ahmadi siblings from Pakistan had a realistic prospect of success before a judge on the basis of new evidence from the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association of the United Kingdom about their activities in the UK since their original asylum appeal has been dismissed in 2009. The law on asylum claims based on religion had changed since 2009, particularly with the Country Guidance case of MN and Others (Ahmadis – country conditions – risk) Pakistan CG [2012] UKUT 389 (IAC), and the Home Office had failed to apply the current approach in the decision letters in this case.
