|Asylum Alert System 避難警示|
Asylum Alert System aims to help asylum seekers (mainly dissidents from mainland China) better understand the risk or threat to personal safety in seeking asylum in countries that are the more popular destinations for asylum seekers. When there are signs of threat in a place that may affect the personal safety of asylum seekers, the Security Section will assess and consider the need to issue an Asylum Alert taking into account factors such as the nature, level and duration of the threat.
