Petitioner's request for review of the BIA's final removal order denying his asylum application and ordering him removed to Yemen is granted and the case remanded as petitioner has established that he was subjected to past persecution, and as such, he is entitled to the presumption of a well-founded fear of future persecution, which would make him eligible for asylum.
