Refugees: UK Home Secretary Braverman questions asylum for ‘simply being gay or a woman’ – BBC News

Fearing discrimination for being gay or a woman should not be enough to qualify for international refugee protection, the UK home secretary has said.

Addressing a US think tank on Tuesday, Suella Braverman questioned whether the application of the UN’s 1951 Refugee Convention is “fit for our modern age”.

Laws have morphed from helping those fleeing persecution to those fearing bias, she argued.

Labour accused her of having “given up on fixing” the asylum system.
