This is despite the fact that it is now widely accepted that Christians in Syria are facing genocide. Instead the guidance simply asks staff assessing asylum claims to ask: ‘if the person’s fear is of serious harm or persecution on the basis of actual or perceived support for the Assad regime / rebel groups, the onus will be on that person to establish that they are unable to obtain sufficient protection from that regime / group’.
