Baghdasaryan v. Holder, No. 05-72416

By FindLaw Staff on January 13, 2010 4:54 PM

In a petition for review of the BIA's denial of petitioner's asylum application, the petition is granted where: 1) the evidence in the record would compel a reasonable factfinder to conclude that petitioner was mistreated because of his political opinion; and 2) the BIA needed to consider whether the threats, harassment, fines, detention, and beating that petitioner experienced rose to the level of persecution.
