A YOUNG Libyan asylum seeker in Scotland, who has set his sights on becoming a professional boxer, has waited months for his claim to be heard and it could be a year or more before the Home Office decides if he can stay.

Monther Mesrati came here twice as a visitor to reconnoitre his further education options before arriving on a six-month student visa in 2015.

Now 25, he completed his HND in architecture at college in Dundee with good grades, but said he had let himself down because of worries over his immigration status – or lack of it – after his first asylum claim was rejected.
