Austria is Deporting a Sick Chechen Mother

Austria is Deporting a Sick Chechen Mother

Alev Korun, the spokeswoman of Austrian Greens on human rights, has published a press release that Austria is going to deport a Chechen mother and her two sons to Poland on March 8th.

According to the press release, the Chechen mother has serious mental health problems. However, Austrian Interior Ministry authorities say that the extradition has legal grounds.

“After four and a half years, the authorities determined that the family’s situation is a so-called Dublin case, thus Poland must be in charge of their asylum procedure. Yes, there is a legal ground for deportation, but the mother is sick and must be protected from deportation,” said Karin Klaric, a legal advisor of the family

“Apparently the Interior Ministry has learned nothing from their mistakes. After years, they understand, they could determine which country is responsible on their asylum process, but there is a sick woman; their deportation is senseless and inhumane treatment,” said Alev Korun.

Earlier we had published news about this family’s situation. Until now, Austria had already tried to extradite the family six times. But the extradition process had stopped due to the mother’s poor health. The last attempt was in December of 2010.
