Netherlands: deportation?

An Afghan convert from Islam to Christianity is facing deportation from the Netherlands after his asylum application was rejected, it was reported in late December.

Mostafa Najafi, who became a Christian in early 2013, had to flee Afghanistan after he was threatened with death – even by his own father – because of his conversion. Apostasy, leaving Islam, is judicially punishable by death in Afghanistan. Earlier this year, Afghan MPs called in parliament for all converts to Christianity to be killed, in accordance with shari’a law.
