The UKBA case resolution directorate (CRD) has now completed a review of the older asylum cases (known as 'legacy cases'). A small number of cases have been reviewed but are still awaiting a conclusion. Some examples of cases awaiting conclusion are:

  • cases awaiting prosecution;
  • cases awaiting removal (including a small number of cases that require further casework action before removal action can be progressed);
  • cases with ongoing litigation; and
  • cases that were placed in a controlled archive because the CRD could not trace the applicant.

This is not an exhaustive list.

Some cases were not included in the original CRD review because of the quality of data at the time when the asylum application was made.

Case Assurance And Audit Unit (CAAU)

The UKBA case assurance and audit unit (CAAU) will now consider any such cases. If the CRD was unable to contact an applicant, their case was probably placed in the controlled archive. If the UKBA now makes contact with that applicant, their case will be taken out of the controlled archive and the CAAU will consider it.
