“Kosal Khiev and Masahiro arrived at Heathrow airport on June 23rd as planned to attend the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad for Poetry Parnassus where 204 poets from 204 countries gather to celebrate peace and art. Kosal was invited to represent the Kingdom of Cambodia. Upon arrival at the border control, immigration officials blocked his entry and detained him. He is currently at an immigration holding center, experiencing some trauma that he went through a year ago when he was deported to Cambodia from the U.S. We are making all efforts to free Kosal. Please help spread the word and build pressure to the UK border control. Kosal has a visa issued by UK government to participate in this event. Thank you.”

Kosal Released

Kosal was finally released from the UK immigration authority after over 20 hours of incarceration. We still need to find out what kept him there but for now we have little to worry about. Thank you so much for your support. They took a notice of the large amount of international inquiries that followed his detention. It definitely made the difference. Otherwise, it would have been not until Monday afternoon (I’m guessing). So thank you.
