How will Gordon Brown's review help this family?

From The Times:
Mohammad, 25, father of a six-month-old son, was the first interpreter to be killed — or at least his was the first killing to be recorded — since Gordon Brown promised to review the Government’s refusal to give interpreters special help in seeking asylum.
Two sentences in the Times report provide a clear snapshot of the state of security in Basra today.
Threats from the militia forced Alaa to move to the base permanently three months ago. He could not even leave to attend his brother’s funeral yesterday.
