Applicant failed to rebut presumption of state protection

Application for judicial review of decision of Refugee Protection Division of Immigration and Refugee Board that applicants, citizens of Columbia, were neither Convention Refugees nor persons in need of protection. Board found that applicant failed to rebut presumption of state protection in Columbia finding there was no reason why he could not have called police to address subsequent threats since he was willing to contact police as result of initial issues with members of AUC and police responded each time. Application dismissed. Logical to assume that similar action and response would be reasonably forthcoming in more serious situations.
