By FindLaw Staff on September 23, 2009 11:24 AM

A final order of the BIA denying Indonesian national's request for withholding of removal on the basis of political asylum is affirmed as petitioner failed to establish past persecution in Indonesia or a clear probability of future persecution. Petitioner's claim of a due process violation resulting from insufficient transcription also fails as he did not establish that it created prejudice.
