Appeal against a UT determination which upheld a Secretary of State decision to exclude the appellant from enjoying Refugee Convention 1951 protection due to art 1F(b) and/or the Qualification Directive, art 12. The principal issue was the scope of the exclusionary clause in art 1F(b) of the Convention and whether expiating factors could be considered.
