Asylum judge slammed for homophobia UK

Gay charity Stonewall has written to the Home Secretary Charles Clarke urging him to reassess a gay Iranian refugee’s asylum application, as awareness of the treatment of lesbian and gay people in Iran continues to rise.

Stonewall says the Home Office should intervene in the unnamed man’s case, and warned that the judge who ruled he should be returned could be regarded as homophobic.
