Human Rights and Asylum
The UK government is required to act in a manner that is consistent with the European Convention on Human Rights and the 1951 United Nations Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.
Making an application to remain in the UK on the basis of your human rights or because you have a well-founded fear of persecution is however an extremely complicated and detailed process. You will need to ensure that you have strong evidence to support your claim, a detailed chronology of events and, in most cases, evidence from witnesses who can support your claim.
