Once the Work Capability Assessment process has been completed claimants will be given a prognosis period which advises when their claim is likely to be reviewed. However, routine repeat reassessments are currently suspended for the time-being to concentrate resources on the processing of new claims.</p><p>Claims to ESA only end when an individual is found to be ineligible for the benefit or there has been a significant improvement in an individual’s functional capability.</p> more like this

Our High Commission in Malaysia has discussed the matter with Malaysian ministers and officials on a number of occasions. The former Minister of State again met Anwar Ibrahim during the latter’s visit to the UK in June. <br> <br> Anwar Ibrahim’s appeal against his conviction is being monitored closely by officials from our High Commission in Malaysia who are attending court hearings alongside other local diplomatic missions. We are aware of allegations that the case is politically motivated. As the case is not yet concluded, it would be inappropriate to comment further.</p><p> </p>
