The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit held that BIA ( Board of Immigration Appeal) misinterpreted the scope of Federal Regulation (8 CFR §208.6) when it held that sensitive information had not been revealed to the applicant’s home government. The government breached the confidentiality owed to the asylum applicant when it submitted a document for authentication to the Chinese Prison Bureau.
