Sweden to deport soccer player back to Liberia (Find Out )

The Swedish government says they know Andrew Nagbe will face hardships in Liberia, but because they don't believe physical beatings "are sanctioned by the state," they are fine with it.

According to http://www.outsports.com
Sweden plans to deport Andrew Nagbe who is reportedly gay. He had sought safety in Sweden. Nagbe was reportedly detained by immigration services at a recent pride festival in Sweden because his papers were not in order.

“In prison, I will be raped and beaten every day until I am released and can leave the country again,” Nagbe told Dagens Nyheter, a Swedish publication. Everyone in Liberia now knows that I’m gay, so they will do what they want with me. That’s why I do not want to go home.”

Apparently, the Swedish government doesn’t believe Nagbe, that he will face such atrocities.

“Our assessment is that there is a danger of homosexuals in Liberia with the risk of harassment and more,” Michael Persson, head of the department of administrative processing at the Swedish Migration Board, told Dagens Nyheter. “But there is no evidence that there are abuses that are sanctioned by the state. We always do individual tests based on the asylum application as the foundation, and it is up to the applicant to come up with credible evidence.”

We hope all work out for him. If he decides to say in Sweden, let God be with him. If he gets deported back home, I hope the Liberian people stop punishing people for being gay. God is our only judge. Who are we to really judge?
