As previously stated, Her Majesty’s Government takes its commitments to its international obligations very seriously and asylum cases require special care. These obligations cannot permit the disclosure of information that could in turn make these individuals identifiable. This remains the position, and extends to the applications for other forms of leave. In view of the small number of individuals involved, disclosure of nationalities may lead to identification.
