Hoe kan je de IND overtuigen een visumzaak aan te houden? (Kant en klare brief)

Een advocaat deed mij een geanonimiseerde beslissing toekomen in een zaak van hem waarin de IND stelde dat voor de pandemiesituatie geen aanhoudingsbeleid is binnen de Visumcode. Dat de Visumcode kort cyclisch is en dat niet zonder meer kan worden uitgegaan van ongewijzigde omstandigheden in de situatie van aanvrager. Voorts zou er geen grondslag zijn voor termijnverlenging voor onderzoek en dergelijke. Dit alles maakte dat zijn verzoek om aanhouding werd afgewezen.

Ik heb een artikel geschreven van 10 pagina's in Word waar ik op deze punten inga. Wellicht scheelt dat u een berg werk.

"Gore leugenaars en verdraaiers van de waarheid: de waarheid, vertrouwen en het asielsysteem" (‘Vile liars and truth distorters’: truth, trust and the asylum system)

Melanie Griffiths is a DPhil candidate at Oxford University, with affiliation to the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, and the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society. Her research is on the asylum system in the UK, with a particular focus on refused asylum seekers and immigration detainees. Her doctoral thesis is on truth, trust and identification and she has also written on time and uncertainty in relation to migration. Her email address is melanie.griffiths@sant.ox.ac.uk
asylumAsylum seekers and refused refugees are some of the most mistrusted persons in British society, widely assumed to be manipulating the immigration system. In 2008-10 I conducted 18 months of anthropological fieldwork with asylum seekers living in Oxford or held in immigration detention, as part of a PhD at the University of Oxford researching the asylum system. The majority of the some 300 asylum applicants I spoke to were at some point accused by the UK Border Agency (UKBA) of providing untrue information about who they were and what had happened to them, or requesting asylum when they had no valid claim under the Refugee Convention. Such accusations are crucial, given that the notoriously difficult decision to grant refugee status is often bond up in assessments of the applicant’s honesty or ‘credibility’.
Rather than focus on the ‘traditional’ discussion about the truthfulness of asylum seekers however, I turn the tables on assessments of confusion and incoherence in order to explore how asylum applicants themselves experience, understand and explain the bureaucracy they are embedded in. I argue that deception, uncertainty and mistrust are as much characteristics of asylum seekers’ perspective of the immigration system as the reverse. But whilst an asylum applicant’s inconsistency is routinely interpreted as evidence of lying, that of UKBA representatives is considered indicative of inconsequential errors or even new versions of the ‘truth’.
A culture of disbelief
Many organisations and advocates have argued that there is a ‘culture of disbelief’ within the UKBA, meaning that asylum seekers are met with chronic suspicion and presented as liars or cheats. This has serious implications, given that being branded a liar tends to not only affect the outcome of asylum claims, but likelihood of being detained and ability to obtain legal representation.
Entrenched suspicion and accusations of deception and trickery are not only directed towards asylum seekers and immigration detainees however. Rather, mistrust is experienced by and of most persons involved in the refugee system, including asylum seekers mistrusting the UKBA. For some, this tipped over into believing that the authorities deliberately lied to them. Scores claimed that the UKBA distorted reality in order to tarnish reputations.
Confusion and inconsistency
UKBA CroydonMistrust of the UKBA arises from an immigration system that is deeply confusing and imbued with uncertainty, a high error rate and sometimes apparently arbitrary decision-making. Working in this field, one frequently witnesses mistakes made by the UKBA, from their use of multiple different names or dates of birth for a person within a single letter, to extremes such as confusing which individual has been deported or incorrectly bestowing refugee status.
In addition to mistakes, people spoke of UKBA decision-making as unfair and unfathomable. Release from immigration detention for example often appears arbitrary or inexplicable. People can be released suddenly and unexpectedly, only to be promptly re-detained.
Contradiction and the irrational
At times however, my informants not only expressed the opinion that the immigration system was unpredictable and confusing, but that it was downright irrational. This included instances in which the UKBA held multiple, but incompatible, positions. Twice I knew individuals who were imprisoned for using false identity documents, whilst simultaneously the UKBA insisted that their ‘real’ identities were those on the false document. I spoke to a handful of people who had been refused refugee status because they had not committed identity offences, but had travelled with ‘real’ passports or visas, which was taken to prove that their government was not seeking them. I knew one man accused of absconding from the authorities at a time when he was working as a police informer and another when he was actually in prison.
New truths and unlevel playing fields
‘When immigration lie it is acceptable, but when I speak they call it deception.  They have language for it.’ (detainee Roger)
The article suggests that although trust and honesty are issues central to the whole British asylum system, a reductive emphasis on the honesty of asylum applicants overlooks wider systemic uncertainty and mistrust. Asylum applicants feel that the authorities make arbitrary and unfair decisions that they cannot make sense of and that hinder their ability to know what to say and do. For them, the state is not a powerful monolithic entity, but a collection of administrators who are in permanent contradiction. That policymakers and bureaucrats might make errors or unfathomable, inconsistent decisions is not in itself surprising. However, two points make this particularly pertinent in the context of the asylum and immigration detention systems.
Firstly, for asylum seekers and detainees, the immigration system is not simply a bureaucracy that they are sometimes frustratingly forced to engage with. Rather, especially for those incarcerated, it is one that frames their entire lives and in which mistakes have serious repercussions for their immediate lives and potential futures. Secondly, there is an irony in a system that is itself imbued with error and confusion, placing such great primacy on the truthfulness of asylum seekers, that narrative inconsistencies can undermine the chances of a person receiving refugee protection. The British asylum process operates under the assumption that ‘truthful’ applicants present their stories in a ‘coherent and consistent’ manner, attributes that are often missing in the authorities’ own responses. As such, asylum seekers are held to a higher standard of truth-telling than those making decisions about their claims.
detentionI would go even further and suggest that the ‘truth value’ of UKBA representatives is considered far greater than those subject to the asylum and detention systems, allowing the former to insist on particular versions of the ‘truth’, and threaten individuals who resist it with criminal repercussion. This commonly includes disputes over the nationality of failed asylum seekers, with individuals imprisoned for not cooperating with removal to a country they insist is not their own. Furthermore, errors made but denied by the UKBA can become a new version of the ‘truth’, with applicants accused of deception if they do not conform to them.
I do not suggest that asylum seekers do not ‘lie’ (as problematic as that term is), merely that an examination of the context in which they are embedded may help illuminate systemic tensions and individual’s decision-making. In fact, lying cam even be interpreted as a rational response to negotiating a complex and inconsistent immigration system. The reality of my fieldsite was messy and complicated and although I frequently encountered scenarios which I knew involved untruths, my uncertainty as to where the ‘truth’ lay and the nagging sense of irrationality that I often felt, was as much the case in conversations with the UKBA as with asylum seekers.
This is a much shortened version of the full article. The journal, Anthropology Today, however has kindly provided open access to the article for six months. You can read the full article here.

Marokkaanse clienten? Dan is dit een leuk boek om te lezen en hebben jullie wat te praten over Marokkaanse geschiedenis

In het Nederlands en in het originele Engels verkrijgbaar
Bookreview: "The tenth gift" A woman is abducted to become a slave in Morocco in the 16th century. In the 20th century a descendant retraces her story. A year ago I read a book written by a British lady who explained she had written a prior novel about white slavery in Morocco and when she was doing research in Morocco she fell in love with a Moroccan guy. When I saw that this earlier novel was for sale I bought it. Reading I discovered that the story started in Mousehole in Cornwall. Mousehole the place one of my Facebook lived. So I mailed her and Sue said: "I know. I know the lady and her Moroccan husband." Talking of living in a small world.

That small world is also a theme in the book itself. The leading lady is given a book by her boyfriend on the evening of him breaking up with her. Reading is she discovers notes in it written in the 17th century by a young woman from Cornwall. It turns o…

Britse rechter over de vraag of bij herhaalde aanvraag opvang moet worden geboden (uitspraak)

182.
No fair-minded person would be unsympathetic to the practical difficulties faced by the hard-pressed officials who have to deal with a large number of “fresh” asylum applications at the same time as applications for section 4 support. All judges of the Administrative Court will themselves have seen purported “fresh” submissions which are no such thing and submissions which, in their presentation, are voluminous and unfocused. I have certainly seen submissions of that nature in my judicial capacity and that is why the suggestion that only about 15% of such submissions ultimately are found to be true “fresh” submissions within Rule 353 comes as no real surprise. Equally, it would be wrong not to acknowledge that the formulation of guidance to case owners dealing with such matters must undoubtedly be a difficult task. Furthermore, the resources available to deal with these matters doubtless face the same constraints that every other publicly-funded task faces at present.

COVID: Are The Netherlands forgetting to be lenient and take measures for their legal immigrants? (visa free travellers, searchyear students)

Corona as it is called in The Netherlands changed the Dutch landscape. Most of us are working from home and people social distance. So far we seem to be able to cope. However now the dust settles a bit and the most urgent matters have been dealt with problems emerge for the group that had been here legally and was taking care of themselves but now still are stuck in The Netherlands and on the other hand see all kind of institutions in a Corona-sleep.

I heard rumoured (from an international webinar) that several countries created a solution to prevent people to become illegal). Both Portugal and Italy have new COVID residence permits for people working in certain areas. Italy got into trouble because migrants had left when the pandemic started and there were no people available to pick the harvests. Australia created a Temporary Covid Activity Visa for people working in Healthcare, Agriculture, Food-processing and Agriculture.
New Zealand automaticity renewed the residence permits in e…

Startup visa for Italy

Italy offers a streamlined visa program for foreigners intending to set up an innovative startup or to join an already established startup https://www.mazzeschi.it/italy-startup-visa/. In addition, Italy provides a favourable environment for the establishment and the development of innovative companies, thanks to the generous incentive scheme provided by the government https://www.ice.it/en/markets/united-kingdom/smart-start-italy-most-generous-incentive-scheme-start-ups-world

Searchyear permits and COVID-19 / Corona -- Zoekjaar en Corona

A group of people who are in The Netherlands with a Zoekjaar-residence permit (a permit that allows you a year in The Netherlands while you look for a job there) are lobbying for an extension of their permit now exceptional circumstances with Corona and a semi-lockdown are making it very difficult for them to find that job.

But what are the legal remedies when you cannot fly back home but overstaying might see you in trouble with your insurances and maybe a mark on your immigrational future?


Situation 1: Your Zoekjaar permit is still valid for over 3 months

Use your time to apply for jobs. Are you familiar with http://www.academictransfer.com? In The Netherlands a Phd position is a paid job and comes with a residence permit. Also read up on doing an extra Master as also studying comes with a permit and while you study you can go and look for a Kennismigranten or Research job as well.
In the meantime lobby at parliament and talk with journalists but focus on job-hunting.

Situation 2: Yo…

"Morocco, maybe" - leuk boek voor mensen met veel Marokkaanse clienten of wie er zelf zijn geweest

For those who ever visited Morocco and did the "Royal cities"- tour around the country this book is a feast of recognition as we say in Dutch. But the book offers so much more.


Sara is a young corporate attorney who ruthlessly goes for the kill to further her career. In this case to stop an archaeological dig in Afghanistan so her client a Chinese mining corporation can start mining.


But when she attends a charity function with her fiancé Nathan it is clear that her life is very "empty". She is the only one who takes the time to go and look at the artwork from Afghanistan, the rest is discussing golf. Her fiancé does not bother to have a look even when Sara used to study Art and he must know it is something that hugely interests her. There is only one other person interested in the art, a handsome man. He advises her to bid on the trips in the auction and that is what she tells her fiancé Nathan to do. To be flabbergasted that the guy she chatted with at the art e…

Duitsland stopt met het leggen van Dublinclaims voor Syrische asielzoekers die via een ander EU-land zijn ingereisd

Dublin-Prüfung für syrische Flüchtlinge ausgesetzt 25.08.2015 - 18:25 Uhr
Berlin/Brüssel (dpa) - Deutschland will syrische Asylbewerber nicht mehr in andere EU-Länder zurückschicken, über die sie in die Europäische Union eingereist sind. Eine neue Regelung im Bundesamt für Migration und Flüchtlinge (BAMF) sieht vor, dass das Dublin-Verfahren für Syrer ausgesetzt wird. Normalerweise wird bei jedem Asylbewerber zwingend geprüft, ob er zuerst in einem anderen Land europäischen Boden betreten hat. Ist dem so, muss der Betroffene eigentlich dorthin zurück. Darauf wird bei Syrern nun offiziell verzichtet. Es gelten aber ohnehin schon seit Monaten gelockerte Vorgaben für Flüchtlinge aus dem Krisenstaat. Die sogenannte Dublin-Verordnung sieht vor, dass derjenige Mitgliedstaat für ein Asylverfahren zuständig ist, in dem ein Asylbewerber erstmals europäischen Boden betritt. Die Prüfung ist aber aufwendig. Auch der Prozess der Rücküberstellung eines Flüchtlings an…

Britse uitspraak over Azeri alleenstaande moeder met kind van gemengd ras (uitspraak met landeninfo))

Het gaat hier om een zaak waarbij een Christelijke Azeri dame met een moeder die na tweede huwelijk moslim is geworden naar de Caribbean gaat en daar zwanger wordt van een zwarte meneer. Ze krijgt een koffiekleurig kindje en vraagt in Engeland asiel aan omdat ze volgens haarzelf zo problemen in Azerbeidzjan zal krijgen.

Deze uitspraak http://www.bailii.org/uk/cases/UKUT/IAC/2013/00046_ukut_iac_sl_ors_azerbaijan_cg.html geeft veel achtergrond informatie over Azerbeidzjan.

De rechtbank komt tot de volgende comclusie:


108. Having considered all the evidence before us we conclude: 1.Azerbaijan is a country with high levels of corruption and there is clear evidence that political dissent is not tolerated. 2.There is nothing to indicate that the State would in any way penalise unmarried mothers (approximately 10% of mothers) or those who have mixed race children. There are in place some support mechanisms for single parents. 3.In order to access benefits, accommodation or work a residence pe…
