The Upper Tribunal has issued a new Country Guidance case on Ahmadis from Pakistan, the case of MN and others (Ahmadis – country conditions – risk) Pakistan CG  UKUT 00389 (IAC). Shivani Jegarajah and Colin Yeo of Renaissance Chambers (and this blog) were instructed, as were Manjit Gill QC, Peter Jorro and David Lemer.
There were five appellants and all had been disbelieved to various extents by judges of the First-tier Tribunal, although it is interesting that at paragraph 128 the tribunal suggests a degree of over-scepticism on their part:
Having heard the extensive evidence from the expert and other witnesses as to Ahmadi practices and circumstances in Pakistan whose integrity is beyond doubt as well as the appellants who gave evidence before us, we consider that had the First tier Tribunal Judges heard this new evidence it is possible that they might have come to different conclusions.
Certainly the Upper Tribunal heard a wide range of evidence over the seven days of the hearing. Four independent experts gave evidence on various aspects of the situation of Ahmadis in Pakistan: the history and social context, the position of women, the position in law and the position on the ground in terms of police and court practice. A further three non appellant Ahmadis gave evidence as witnesses on the situation of women, on doctrinal and theological issues and on the targeting of Ahmadis, the way the community records such incidents and the way the community organises itself.
