Mehdi granted 'leave to remain'

I am just waiting on confirmation for this but I have just heard second-hand that Mehdi has been granted asylum. More detail when I get it.

2.30pm: It's confirmed, Mehdi told the ukgaynews website that he had received a letter from the Home Office today to say his asylum request had been granted.

“I am so happy,” he said, adding that he was grateful to all the help he had been given, especially by Simon Hughes MP.

A statement will be issued tomorrow.

6.30pm: CNN reporting soon that Mehdi has been granted 'leave to remain' for five years. This is standard Home Office practice and is not the same as 'asylum'.

Further updates will be added as new posts.
