Burmese failed asylum seekers may benefit from the change in Burmese Country Guidance
The Court of Appeal has in the case of KS (Burma) v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWCA Civ 67 found that the 2009 Country Guidance case of TL (Sur Place activities-risk) Burma  UKAIT 00017 was legally flawed, effectively overturning it in what had become a proxy appeal. The Court of Appeal has at a stroke re-opened all Burmese asylum claims decided since 2009 that turned on the relevant point of law, which has been a central one in many rejected Burmese cases. It has also highlighted one of the glaring legal problems with what Laws LJ once described as the exotic notion of a factual precedent in a common law system.
Burmese failed asylum seekers still here in the UK whose claims were rejected on the basis of TK should seek legal advice and consider making a fresh claim for asylum.
