Poland Deported A Chechen Asylum Seeker

TWN Warszawa, a Polish tv channel, reported that Polish authorities deported a Chechen asylum seeker man to Russia due to couldn’t provide enough evidence about his marriage.

According to tv report, Mariet Makkaeva and Arbi Avtuev ran away the horrors of war in Chechnya, found an refuge in 2008 in Poland and created a happy family. After two years peaceful resident in Pruszków, a town in central Poland, they suffered a tragedy. Until last Tuesday (April 27th), everything was okay for this Chechen family. But police arrested Arbi for deportation. The Polish Office for Foreigners had decided to deport Arbi, because he couldn’t prove that he is a father of a small girl (Yasmine) and the husband of Mariet.

“I do not understand why they wanted to deport him. We live in Poland for two years. We have a small girl and I am six months pregnant” said Mariet Makkaeva with tears in her eyes.

“Our officials learned that Arbi and Makka were married according to Islamic rules. But it isn’t enough to say yes, they were married. We couldn’t confirm it” said Rafał Rogala, head of the Office for Foreigners.

Anna Kuhn, president of Poland-Chechen Committee, considers that Polish authorities used to profit by simple hearts of Chechen asylum seekers for deportation. “They gave a letter which includes confirmation of voluntary deportation. Arbi signed a letter. Because the paper was in Polish. They do not know Polish” said Ms Kuhn.

Arbi Avtuev was deported to Russian on Wednesday, April 28th.
