RT (2000 Procedure Rule 22(7)) Cameroon  UKIAT 00078
Date of hearing: 31 January 2005
Date Determination notified: 31st March 2005
|Secretary of State for the Home Department||RESPONDENT|
"Where the Tribunal decides to admit any evidence under this rule, it may direct that it be given, either –
(a) orally, in which case the Tribunal may take the evidence itself or remit the appeal to the same or another Adjudicator for the taking of that evidence; or
(b) in writing, in which case it shall be given in any manner and at any time that the Tribunal may direct.
The Tribunal stated that in order to decide whether there was a real risk of treatment contrary to Article 3, the question of internal relocation might be relevant and as a consequence it was necessary to obtain further evidence from the Adjudicator in relation to that issue. It was stated that if the appellant desired to give further evidence then he should be permitted to do so to enable that question to be answered. The appeal was adjourned part-heard.
"Where any proceedings are transferred to another Adjudicator in accordance with paragraph (1) – …
(a) any notice or other document which is sent or given to or by the Adjudicator from whom the proceedings were transferred shall be deemed to have been sent or given to or by the Adjudicator to whom the appeal is transferred."
"But we do need evidence from which we can judge whether there would be undue hardship in expecting the appellant to locate elsewhere in the Cameroons or whether there is any other reason apart from the fear of the ability of the families to find him and to deal with him which would mean that it was not reasonable to expect him to locate elsewhere."
