Possible Death for Iranian Teen

The Advocate follows a number of other outlets that are reporting on this story. They say that a young Iranian man who sought sanctuary in the UK now faces deportation back to his home country. Medhi Kazemi, 19, came to London to study English in 2004 and later discovered that his boyfriend back in Iran had been arrested, charged with sodomy, and hanged, according to The [London] Independent. He also found out that during his boyfriend's interrogation by local police, he named Kazemi as his partner.

Kazemi filed for asylum in England, but his case was denied in 2007, so he fled to Holland, where he is presently being detained.

It is another horrifying story from Iran and I certainly hope that common sense prevails and he is granted asylum.
