Note on Open Briefing of CTC on Safe Haven and Asylum

In its resolution 1373 (2001), the Security Council decides that all States shall “deny safe haven to those who finance, plan, support or commit terrorist acts, or provide safe havens”.1 The resolution also calls upon States to take appropriate measures, in conformity with the relevant provisions of national and international law, “before granting refugee status, for the purpose of ensuring that the asylum-seeker has not planned, facilitated or participated in the commission of terrorist acts,”2 as well as to ensure that refugee status “is not abused by the perpetrators, organizers or facilitators of terrorist acts, and that claims of political motivation are not recognized as grounds for refusing requests for the extradition of alleged terrorists”.
