AN INQUEST into the apparent suicide of an Iranian asylum seeker in Huddersfield has been adjourned for a second time.
Sirous Khajeh, 29, was found dead at his Folly Hall flat on Christmas Eve, 2002.
An earlier hearing in Huddersfield was told he had fled to Britain in the summer of 2001.
Although Mr Khajeh won his fight for refugee status, he received a letter from the Home Office shortly before Christmas, 2002, telling him to leave his flat. He believed his application to remain in the UK had failed.
"Someone had got the situation horribly wrong," said West Yorkshire coroner Roger Whittaker yesterday.
"Rather than having refugee status determined it had, in fact, indicated the reverse," he added.
Just before yesterday's hearing Mr Whittaker received further information about what Mr Khajeh had been told about his legal status and tenure of his property.
Mr Whittaker adjourned the inquest so he could study the additional facts.
