unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>It has been the longstanding policy of successive governments not to comment on intelligence matters. However, Islamic State of Syria and the Levant also known as the ISIS was proscribed as a terrorist organisation with effect from 20 June. Proscription means that an organisation is outlawed and is unable to operate in the UK. It is a criminal offence for a person to belong to or invite support for a proscribed organisation. It is also a criminal offence to arrange a meeting in support of a proscribed organisation or to wear clothing or to carry articles in public which arouse reasonable suspicion that an individual is a member or supporter of the proscribed organisation. Penalties for proscription offences are a maximum of ten years in prison and/or a £10,000 fine.</p><p /> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p /> <p>Failed asylum seekers whose appeal rights have been exhausted are not allowed to work because they do not need our protection, have no right to remain in the United Kingdom and are required to leave. Our policy must maintain the distinction between those who need our protection and those seeking to work here. Allowing refused asylum seekers to work, even where removal is difficult, would send the wrong message and undermine the removal process by creating an incentive to frustrate removal.</p><p /> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Home Office has laid 51 statutory instruments so far this calendar year. Five of these (10%) corrected errors in a previous instrument. Not all &quot;errors&quot; in a statutory instrument are drafting errors. Some instruments are withdrawn due to factual errors or changes in policy.The Home Office Legal Adviser's Branch has in place a &quot;three pairs of eyes&quot; check on all statutory instruments made by the Department. The policy instructions must be cleared by a Senior Civil Service official in the instructing unit. Instruments are then drafted by the responsible lawyer and are checked and cleared by the Senior Civil Service team leader. Instruments are then finally cleared by one of two senior lawyers with specialist drafting skills before they are laid. These processes were enhanced and improved in April this year. The quality of statutory instrument drafting is also being discussed within the wider Treasury Solicitor’s Department with a view to identifying ways of improving quality through, for example, more rigorous monitoring, better training and more flexible use of experienced and skilled drafters.</p><p> </p>

It is required to provide prima facie evidence in support of any extradition request.The Category 2 designation does not in itself amount to a simplified extradition procedure. When deciding an extradition case the court must consider any relevant Human Rights concerns. If the court believes a person’s rights under the European Convention on Human Rights would be breached, they must discharge the request.</p><p /> more like this
