Nadmid is a native and citizen of Mongolia.  He applied for asylum, withholding of removal, and protection under the Convention Against Torture.  Though he testified consistently with his declaration and with the testimony of an expert witness, the Immigration Judge still found his testimony to lack credibility.  This determination was premised on inconsistencies between Nadmid's in-court testimony and his statements during an airport interview conducted in Russian. The Seventh Circuit reversed, noting the indicia of unreliability in the transcript of the airport interview, which clearly reflected that Nadmid was not a fluent Russian speaker and was having difficulty communicating the with the interviewer.
