I would like to thank you for the article published in Embassy (RE: "Canada Turning Away Afghan Asylum Seekers," Aug. 20). My brother's application for asylum was also denied following an interview in the Canadian embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan this year. I found the interview to be conducted in an outrageous way, and the decision was unfair. Numerous errors were made. My brother was asked questions not related to his case, and the materials and information provided in his application, which would have qualified him for asylum, were totally overlooked.
