This is an appeal from a decision of an adjudicator (Mr K Gillance), sitting at Leeds on 14 March 2001, allowing an asylum and human rights appeal by a Roman Catholic Albanian citizen of Montenegro. Leave was given on the basis of grounds citing the adjudicator's failure to consider internal flight.
... ethnic Albanians from Montenegro are not generally harassed and have their own political party and will find it difficult to substantiate a claim to asylum on general ethnic grounds. I accept that that may well be the case generally. However in this particular case I find that there was a vulnerable area around Podgorica and the military bases there where ethnic Albanians were seriously harassed and terrified by Serbian troops.
