The term ‘Fresh Claim’ refers to an asylum claim that has been refused but there is now new evidence to show that the applicant is at risk on return to their country of origin.
Most first time asylum claims are refused due to the Home Office and the Immigration Judges at appeal determining that the asylum claimant has been significantly untruthful with regard to their account of why they have a well founded fear of persecution. It is essential that these findings are first addressed before submitting a fresh claim. The relevant case law generally states that decision-makers, when looking at ‘repeat claims’ for asylum, are expected to rely on the credibility findings of the previous claim and unless we can show that those findings are wholly unreasonable and, in relation to the current claim, unsafe to rely on, the chances of the asylum fresh claim succeeding will be significantly reduced.
