|“Where the facts of an individual’s situation are
in dispute, the effective procedural framework should provide for their review.
Given that even the best decision-makers may err in passing judgment, and
given the potential risk to life which may result from such an error, an
appeal on the merits of a negative determination constitutes a necessary
element of international protection.” (Inter-American Commission on
Human Rights, Report on the Situation of Human Rights of Asylum Seekers Within
the Canadian Refugee Determination System, February 2000, para. 109).
