Although strictly speaking, the definition of ’protection claim’ refers to a claim that removal of the claimant from the United Kingdom would breach the United Kingdom’s obligation under the Refugee Convention or in relation to persons eligible for a grant of humanitarian protection, there are also other forms of protection a claimant may seek to place reliance upon such as:
- Article 3 protection( e.g based upon medical grounds, general country conditions or prison conditions );
- Protection provided to those who are stateless;
- Protection provided to those who been subject to trafficking
The consideration of claims for humanitarian protection is however quite different from other forms of protection having regard to the interpretation of the relevant originating provisions including the criteria that an applicant must fall into.
