One in five who have had their asylum applications rejected will prevail when they go to court against the Immigration Appeals Board (UNE). – Extreme numbers, law professor thinks.
A review made by the newspaper VG shows that the decisions were overruled in 22 percent of all cases against the Immigration Appeals Board in the District Court in 2014.
– This is an absolutely extreme number, and it seems clear to me that this is irresponsible. UNE is bending the facts and the law to get people sent away from Norway, says law professor at the University of Oslo, Mads Andenæs, to the newspaper.
– It is good that we live in country where the courts can ensure that the legal minimum requirements are upheld, but the extreme figures must have consequences for proceedings in UDI and UNE, he adds.
UNE director Ingunn-Sofie Aursnes however, does not agree that the figure is too high.
-And UNE and the court very rarely disagree about jurisprudence. When we lose in court, it is often because of specific assessments in individual cases, she says.
