All asylum claims, including those from Sudanese nationals, are carefully considered on their individual merits in accordance with the 1951 United Nations Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and the European Convention on Human Rights against the background of the latest country information and relevant case law. The Home Office monitors the human rights situation in Sudan and will only return individuals who it, and the courts, are satisfied are not in need of international protection and when it is safe to do so.
