||<p>We recognise that there are credible reports of torture, ill-treatment and sexual
violence perpetrated by the security forces in the aftermath of the <br>civil war.
The Home Office's consultation with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office varies from
case to case. However, we are in regular discussions about the human rights situation
in Sri Lanka more generally and the information provided is reflected in the Home
Office’s published country information and guidance report(s) which are publicly available.
<br><br>All asylum claims made by those from Sri Lanka continue to be carefully considered
on their individual merits in accordance with the 1951 Refugee Convention, the European
Convention on Human Rights and against the background of the latest country information
and relevant caselaw – including a Court of Appeal judgment from 18 June 2014 which
found that not everyone, including all Tamils, are at risk on return to Sri Lanka.</p><p>
