Litigation, Litigation, Litigation, S Chelvan proposal for a fairer asylum system: BBC Radio 4 Unreliable Evidence

Thu, 19 Apr 2018

No5 Barristers’ Chambers’ S Chelvan appeared as an expert panellist on last night’s BBC Radio 4’s Unreliable Evidence, hosted by Clive Anderson.  Asked how a fairer asylum system could be achieved?, Chelvan’s closing remarks highlighted the link between litigation and forcing change in Home Office policy.  The standard of first instance decision-making and credibility assessment in LGBT+ asylum claims were also points Chelvan raised in discussion with fellow panellists Catriona Jarvis (a former Upper Tribunal Judge) and Rowan Pennington-Benton (Barrister at 3 Hare Court who has been instructed by the Home Office).

The show was broadcast last night and will be repeated on Saturday night at 10:45 pm.”
