Demonstration in Austria Against Forced Deportations

Ichkeria.info reported that on August 8, a protest demonstration against forced deportations of Chechen political asylum seekers was held in Vienna, the capital of Austria.

The demonstration was organized by the “Organization of Former Prisoners of Russian Filtration Camps from the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria” (OUFKL) and took place between 2:00pm and 5:00pm at Schwarzbergerplatz Square, which is near the Soviet Soldiers Monument.

Austrian journalists from newspapers “Wienerzeitun” and “Der Stadt”, and a reporter from “Tv ORF 1” were also in attendence to protest the meeting. They interviewed Vakha Banzhaev, the chairman of OUFKL.

The participants expressed their protest against the forced deportations of Chechen asylum seekers to the Russian Federation where they will be in mortal danger. They urged Austrian authorities to review the issue and pointed out that the extradition of asylum seekers to countries where justice and security is not guaranteed, is a violation of international law rules.
