UPON CONSIDERING the Appellant’s application dated 22 August 2019

2. His case is also that he has been detained twice in Turkey and badly treated in detention, and that there is a risk that he will be detained again if the allegations against him are reported.

3. He has five British children by two wives. He also fears that there are risks to them and to his ex-wives if he is identified. They might be exposed to the risk of attacks.

4. In the circumstances, an anonymity order is appropriate.
