is mother's letter consistent with your claim?

Ms. Arulanantharasa was denied asylum, because her mother's letter was inconsistent.

In court, Ms. A testified that
- she was threatened in January 2003
-her sister disappeared after being arrested in 2004
- she was burned by cigarettes in 2004

the letter from her mother said many things, and said that daughter had been arrested; however, the letter did not say:
-daughter was threatened in 2003; that sister disappeared, or that daughter was burned by cigarettes
