A gay Iranian man who fled his country for fear of his own safety has been jailed in the UK for one year for possessing a fake passport and driving license after his application for asylum failed to pass through the Home Office.

Majid Naderi, 20, began his new life in Basildon, Essex, under his false identity after he made the decision to leave Iran in July 2007 because of his sexuality.

Homosexuality is strictly forbidden in his home Muslim nation and can lead to death, abuse and imprisonment.

According to the Basildon Recorder, Naderi was jailed for 12 months after pleading guilty to the two possessions of false identification.



The 20-year-old was found to be in possession of a forged Buglarian passport and a Portugese driving license.
