TH came to Sultan Lloyd Solicitors in June 2009 needing our help with his asylum claim. He was from Iraq and had converted from Islam to Christianity, an d therefore he feared persecution by Islamic extremists if he had to return to his home country. He had also been involved with the Millennium Company, a non-government organisation that had been attacked in Iraq.

His asylum claim had initially been refused because it was found that he could safely relocate to the KRG, a safe area for Christians in Iraq.

Sultan Lloyd Solicitors were able to successfully challenge this decision by applying our well-established skills in this area, and with great attention to detail we were able to demonstrate that actually there were various reason s that it would not be safe for TH to return that had not been considered pre viously.

For example, the fact that TH had converted to Christianity from Islam meant that even the KRG woul d not be safe for him. Also, given TH's individual circumstances, it would have been extremely difficult for him to even get to the KRG.

Most significantly, Sultan Lloyd's dedicated solicitors obtained conclusive evidence that even if TH did manage to get to the KRG it was almost certain that he would not be permitted to enter. A recent report confirmed that TH would not be able to enter the KRG without a sponsor, which he would not be able to find given his lack of links to the region, and that his origination from Kirkuk would present a further difficulty.

Since we succeeded in showing that TH would not be able to gain access to the KRG, his appeal for asylum was allowed.

Testimonials

'My friends, the Patel family, were referred to Harminder Meht of Sultan Lloyd in September 2013.  We met Harminder when circumstances were very challenging and Harminder explained the available options very clearly, helpfully and with evident empathy and understanding.  Thereafter she and her colleagues helped us at every step including securing legal aid despite the fact that a previous solicitor had not identified that this was possible. Harminder was instrumental in securing the release from detention of one member of the family and following a difficult judicial review process she obtained a Home Office decision that allows the family leave to remain in the UK, to work and study here for the next 30 months. We are all delighted with Harminder and Sultan Lloyd and we are very happy to recommend Harminder and Sultan Lloyd to future users of their services.'
