Bench Positive at Refugee Hearing
A young woman fleeing from an honour crime was granted refugee protection at the conclusion of her refugee hearing. After questioning led by counsel, the Board Member was satisfied as to the woman’s credibility and her experiences; counsel then reviewed the expert opinions and country documentation submitted, demonstrating that state protection would not be available in her country of origin. Our client will now be able to start her life over as a permanent resident of Canada.
