Chechen Asylum Seeker Faces Deportation from Sweden
Local sources have reported that a male Chechen asylum seeker is facing deportation from Sweden to Russia.
According to the information, Ayndi Aydamirov, born in 1967 is a former resistance fighter from the Chechen National Liberation Movement. He fought against Russian invaders under the command of the well-known field commander, Khamzat Gelayev. However, he was injured and has been forced to leave his homeland Chechen Republic of Ichkeria with his family due to serious threats against his life. They arrived in Sweden and asked for asylum, but their request was denied. Ayndi was arrested on May 16 by police in the city of Gävle, Sweden. Since then he has been in a deportation center and awaiting his deportation day. Some believe that his family may be deported after him.
Citizens of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria in Sweden announced a protest against the serious deportation threat being leveled against Ayndi Aydamirov. The action will be held in front of the Migration Board’s Office at Pyramidvägen 2 A, Solna, Stockholm on October 31 at 10.00am.
