Sick 4 Year old Chechen Girl Faces Deportation From Sweden

Local sources have reported that Swedish authorities decided to deport a sick Chechen girl to the Russian occupied Chechnya where she will inevitably face death.

According to the information, Ruslan Ibragimov and his wife Zezag Ibragimova were forced to leave their homeland due to the ongoing Russian occupation and arrived in Sweden in 2009. That same year, Yasmin Ibragimova was born in a Swedish hospital. In 2012, the family had another daughter. Their asylum demand was rejected, so they tried their chances in Germany, but after a short period they were sent back to Sweden due to the Dublin-II regulation. In November 2013, Ruslan Ibragimov died and left behind his wife with their two small kids. Moreover, 4 year old Yasmin is critically ill. Small Yasmin suffers from a rare illness called “Hydrocephalus” (water on the brain). Her condition is very critical and she can move only with a wheelchair.

The Swedish Migration Court claims in their decision that the small girl can be treated in the Russian occupied Chechnya, but her mother Zezag does not share the same opinion: “In Chechnya, there is no treatment for the disease that Yasmin suffers from. My girl will not survive there,” says Zezag.

The family’s legal representative, Ingrid Schiöler, who has worked on asylum cases since 1970 within the Red Cross, believes that this case is one of the most outrageous that she has ever seen.

“It seems that Swedish authorities don’t care about the fate of this little girl. They say if there isn’t treatment in Chechnya, they may send her to Moscow. The only thing that they want to be sure of is that she doesn’t die during the journey to Russia,” says Schiöler.

There is also an online petition against the deportation of small Yasmin. If you are not indifferent to the fate of this innocent girl, please sign the petition and share it.
