Two Malaysian Gays Claimed Refugee Status In UK
Two Malaysian gays have been granted aslyum in the UK early August 2010. They are 30 year-old Seow Shih Yung, from Penang and 25 year-old Wong Yu Xiu, from Petaling Jaya. UK had granted the status to these two Chinese Malaysia men based on their fear of persecution on grounds of their sexual orientation.
As most Malaysian gays know that under Section 377 of the Malaysian Penal Code, in an offence classified as "carnal intercourse against the order of nature", a convicted person may be punished with imprisonment of up to 20 years and also liable to fine or whipping.
According to their lawyer, both were in a homosexual relationship while in Malaysia, and moved to the UK because they feared that they were not able to practise homosexual relationship openly in Malaysia.
