AN IRANIAN killed himself after being wrongly told his application for asylum had been rejected, a Huddersfield inquest heard.
Kirklees coroner Roger Whittaker criticised the Home Office and local mental health services for their actions.
But he praised Kirklees Asylum Support Services for their efforts.
Mr Whittaker, who ruled that Sirous Khajeh took his own life, said: "A mistake was clearly made.
"I am going to raise concerns with the Home Office and the local mental health services in an effort to prevent similar difficulties."
Mr Khajeh, 29, a former welder, sought asylum in Huddersfield in summer, 2001.
He won his case in October, 2002.
But he was found hanging at his flat in Rashcliffe on Christmas Eve, 2002, days after a support worker told him he had to quit it.
Elaine Peck, of the Leeds-based Yorkshire and Humberside Consortium - which organises the dispersal and housing of asylum seekers - said she was told Mr Khajeh had broken the terms of his tenancy and had to leave the property.
"We are never told why," she added.
Miss Emma Bedeau, of Kirklees Asylum Support Services, said a Home Office letter told her to serve Mr Khajeh with a notice to quit.
Before she did, she checked with the writer of the letter.
"She explained there was a refusal showing in their system," said Miss Bedeau.
She contacted Mr Khajeh's solicitor and was told he had been granted indefinite leave to stay. But she was still told to serve the eviction notice.
