New tribunal case on burden and standard in refugee exclusion cases

New(ish) tribunal case on burden and standard in refugee exclusion cases. The official headnote:

In every case involving exclusion of protection under Article 1F of the Refugee Convention, the onus of proof is on the Secretary of State, a detailed and individualised examination of the facts is required, there must be clear and credible evidence of the offending conduct, and the overall evaluative judgment involves the application of a standard higher than suspicion or belief.
