Information available to the DIRB on the
above-mentioned topic is scarce. Please find attached two articles

researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum.
