"A very good result." Counsel for the homosexual Cameroon believes that the court "understood the risk of persecution" suffered by his client, who filed an appeal.

 "I did not expect much!" Friday, January 7, the court in Bobigny, master Herrero Catherine pleaded the cause of Honoré, a homosexual who appeared for Cameroon refused to board after his asylum claim was rejected by the French Office for Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA). "The court decided to adjourn sentencing for a year," says Mr. Herrero.

"It's a very good result because it means that a court has heard us when we explained the risk of persecution if deported to Cameroon," says the lawyer.

Argued at the hearing by the Association for recognition of the rights of homosexuals and transsexuals to immigration and residence (Ardhis), the Network Education Without Borders (RESF) and the Pink Panthers, Honore should be able to stay in France Pending the decision.

According to counsel, it will depend on the National Court of asylum (CNDA), before which his client has appealed the decision of the OFPRA. "If the CNDA recognizes the risk of persecution, there will be no problem. The court concludes that Honore was wrong to prevent his deportation, which is indeed questionable. However, it shall waive the penalty under the circumstances. "
