Norway faces criticism for the deportation of asylum seekers to Russia
As about 30 000 people claimed asylum in Norway in 2015, the country aims to implement its “tough” new asylum policy adopted last year and to block the cycle road taken by migrants from Russia to Norway.
In this context, 13 single men were deported to Russia, only hours following the rejection of their applications, preventing them to appeal of this decision. Reminding the darkest hours of Nazi occupation in the country, these deportations are likely to put the asylum seekers in life-threatening danger.
Indeed, they might end up in a freezing no man’s land or be deported in their home countries, particularly Balochistan (Pakistan), where their protection can’t be guaranteed. Russia’s poor records on asylum rights should have prevent Norway to perform these deportations, according to the UN.
However, even more worrying is the message send to asylum seekers that could lead to the creation of a “black market of paperless people” hiding from officials. Consequently, criticism continues while refugees’ families are expected to be deported to Russia too.
