COMMUNICATION NO. 431/2010 :COMMITTEE AGAINST TORTURE : DECISION / ADOPTED BY THE COMMITTEE AT ITS 50TH SESSION, 6 TO 31 MAY 2013
Moreover, the allegation that she had been detained each time she visited her sister in prison seemed highly improbable, because such behaviour by the prison authorities would appear to be totally inefficient. (...) She contests the State party’s argument about contradictions regarding the periods of time during which she had been harassed by the Turkish authorities, claiming that no such discrepancies exist, as she has already explained in detail in her appeal against the negative decision of the Federal Office for Migration. 5.5 In response to the State party’s observations that her claims of repeated detention and harassment seem unlikely (para. 4.8 above), that it would appear improbable that the Turkish authorities would persecute her for years and then be informed in 2008 by her own family about the fact that her sister had actually left Turkey (para. 4.9), and that she was not indicted for having helped her sister flee Turkey (para. 4.10), the complainant reiterates the CAT/C/50/D/431/2010 12 arguments put forward in her appeal against the decision of the Federal Office for Migration (see para. 2.11 above), and adds that it does not seem improbable at all that the prisons guards would have detained, searched and harassed her after each of her visits to her sister in prison, since such measures would make sense from the prison guards’ view only if carried out without exception. 5.6 The complainant submits that neither the Federal Office for Migration nor the Federal Administrative Tribunal provide any evidence as to the alleged improvements of the human rights situation in Turkey, nor do they comment in any way on the numerous reports stating the contrary.

GENERAL ASSEMBLY, 16TH SESSION, OFFICIAL RECORDS, 5TH COMMITTEE, 907TH MEETING, MONDAY, 18 DECEMBER 1961, NEW YORK
Since it was unlikely that new arrangements to finance peace-keeping operations would receive the approval of the General Assembly in the near future, and since it seemed improbable that the payment of arrears would soon result in an improved cash posi- tion, it was clear that the only solution was to author- ize the Acting Secretary-General to issue a loan.

ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL RIGHTS : JOINT WRITTEN STATEMENT / SUBMITTED BY EUROPE-THIRD WORLD CENTRE AND THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JURISTS (AAJ)
According to the Bank, poverty has decreased by half since 1981 (from 41% to 21% of the population in developing countries). This is highly improbable, but what needs to be understood, is that poverty is a double reality.

REVIEW OF THE USE AND APPLICATION OF CONVERSION RATES IN THE FORMULATION OF THE SCALE OF ASSESSMENTS : NOTE / BY THE STATISTICAL DIVISION
However, the Working Group also suggested that, should PPP data availability improve, it could be used as a practical analytical tool in identifying anomalous and improbable MER conversions, a sort of controlling mechanism to avoid serious distortions in the use of MERs for specific countries and years. (...) For some countries where the basic conversion methodology does not adjust adequately to shifts in economic conditions, the World Bank Atlas rates are adjusted using three types of variants: (a) fiscal year conversion factors, by which conversion rates are adjusted according to differences in fiscal year compilations; (b) trade- weighted conversion factors for countries with multiple exchange rates; and (c) estimated conversion factors for countries whose exchange rates produce highly improbable and unrealistic United States dollar conversions.

COMMUNICATION NO. 750/2016: DECISION/VIEWS
Also, the complainant’s Facebook page, which had received support from at least 1,199 people, contained several texts and photographs critical of the Iranian regime and Islam, and about the French magazine Charlie Hebdo. 2.9 On 29 December 2014, the Migration Agency rejected the complainant’s request because it considered that it was improbable that the complainant’s activities had become known to the Iranian authorities. 2.10 On 22 January 2015, the complainant appealed against the Agency’s decision to the Migration Court.

COMMUNICATION NO. 2240/2012 : DECISION/VIEWS
The State party therefore submitted that there was no reason to question the assessment made by the Board. 4.18 The State party also observes on this point that the author’s statement on the attack in August 2009 and the subsequent events appear improbable, in view of the background information available on Afghanistan concerning the activities and mode of operation of the Taliban relative to persons suspected by the Taliban of supporting the Government and/or cooperating with foreign organizations. 4.19 The State party argues additionally that the author had also changed and expanded his statement on other points in connection with proceedings before Danish authorities. (...) Moreover, according to the author’s own statements, the State party notes that the author performed compulsory military service, including carrying arms, at a time when the general security situation in Afghanistan was uncertain. 4.24 Additionally, the State party posits that the general situation in Afghanistan is not in itself of such a nature as to entitle the author to asylum. 4.25 Overall, the State party observes that the author, who, according to his own statement, has had 12 years of schooling, has not been able to give a reasonable explanation as to the contradictions and improbabilities that characterize his statements. Against this background, the State party finds no basis for doubting, let alone setting aside, the assessment made by the Refugee Appeals Board, according to which the author has not established that there are substantial grounds for believing that he was in danger of being deprived of his life or subjected to torture when he was returned to Afghanistan.

Nevertheless, if there were any countries which made no such provision—and he thought it highly improbable—he would have no ob- jection to the Commission's referring to the question in order to have a more complete draft. (...) Spiropoulos's suggestion, that it was improbable that there were any countries which made no provision in their laws for the trying of diplomats accused of offences in the receiving State, he pointed out that cases did exist where no such provision was made. 45.
