PJ (Sri Lanka) v Secretary of State for the Home Department – WLR Daily

PJ (Sri Lanka) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2014] EWCA Civ 1011;  [2014] WLR (D)  329

‘When local lawyers obtained relevant documents from a domestic court in relation to an asylum claim and thereafter transmitted them directly to lawyers in the United Kingdom, there was no basis in domestic or European Court of Human Rights jurisprudence for the general approach that there was a rebuttable presumption that documents so obtained were reliable, with the presumption capable of being displaced by evidence or submissions from the Home Secretary. Rather the jurisprudence did no more than indicate that the circumstances of particular cases might exceptionally necessitate an element of investigation by the national authorities in order to provide effective protection against mistreatment, although such a step would frequently not be feasible or it might be unjustified or disproportionate.’
