Withdrawal (“cancellation”) of international protection status is governed by Article 86 LFIP. The law provides that status shall be withdrawn where a beneficiary: (a) by way of false documents, fraud, deceit, or withholding facts, was granted protection; or (b) should have been excluded from international protection.
While LFIP does not expressly provide the same level of guarantees in withdrawal procedures as in Cessation, as it makes no reference to a right of the beneficiary to present his or her observations, the possibility to submit oral or written observations “within a reasonable period” is provided in the RFIP. The remaining rules and procedures are the same as in Cessation.
