Gay Rights Activist in Court

Jimmy had to leave Lebanon when his sexual orientation became public knowledge after a house raid by the police. He was no longer safe, not only because in Lebanon homosexuality is a reason for persecution but also because his father threatened to kill him for violating the family’s honor. He fled his home country and sought asylum in the Netherlands in May 2002. His asylum application has been ongoing ever since.
