Afghanistan: TV music show presenter receives asylum in Sweden

On September 5, 2005, a refugee nightmare for the Afghan TV music show presenter Shakeb Isaar came to an end when he received the news that the Swedish authorities has accepted his application for asylum, giving him the rights to live and work in Sweden.
“The paper from Freemuse and also from RSF helped, and I am very thankful for that,” says Shakeb Isaar. He is now planning to tour Sweden with a lecture on the situation in Afghanistan.
