Asylum Granted for Police Informant

We recently had a client who fled his home country after experiencing multiple threats against his life.

Location: Arlington Immigration Court

Verdict: Asylum Granted

We recently had a client who fled his home country after experiencing multiple threats against his life. The threats were the result of him working as an informant against a criminal group.

His point person at the police was murdered and the client assisted in the investigation of that murder.

Someone in the group learned that the client was working with the police and told him he would be killed when he least expected it. That was when the client left his home country.

After leaving, another informant working on the same case was killed.

We prepared a full asylum packet, as we do for all of our cases, complete with affidavits and country condition reports.

What was unique for this case is that we successfully got a recorded telephone conversation into the record. We transcribed it and then had it translated. The telephone conversation was a threat received by the client.

The judge granted asylum, deciding that the client had met his burden in all aspects required to be granted asylum.
