Stop deportation of Sahar Samet
Sahar Samet, 27, and his father Assadollah Samet 65 are two Afghan asylum seekers in Sweden. Assodollah Samet a political activist and Sahar Samet the human rights activist and journalist had to flee from Afghanistan seeking for a safer place to live.
They have lived in Sweden for few years now, and have had negative decision decisions to their asylum applications and with expulsion order to move back to Afghanistan. The police have entered their room without a prior notice and have detained them around 19.00 PM, 20150223.
The Minister of Refugees and Repatriation in Afghanistan addresses all countries that have agreements on the repatriation of asylum seekers and urges the countries to stop forced expulsions. Afghanistan has been named as a country with most violence and abuses against the journalists and activists. There is 64% increase in the violence against the journalists comparing to the last year, in Afghanistan.
The Afghan Refugees and Repatriation minister in Afghanistan clearly states that the situation is changed since 2011. IT HAS GOTTEN WORSE! Sweden has always supported the human rights and been alongside Afghanistan, now it is time for Sweden to show respect to the last statement of the Afghan officials in not deporting Afghans to Afghanistan.
Sahar Samet has had many TV, Radio and newspaper articles and interviews which add more to the risk on her life if sent to Afghanistan. She has been active in demonstrations in support to the human rights especially the rights of woman. She was the voice of thousands of Afghan women who are made quite. She was actively working as a presenter in Radio program which is very common.
We request the Migration Minister Morgan Johansson and the authorities concerned
· to respect Afghanistan's desire to refuse any forced expulsions,
· to release the Afghans who are currently in detention,
· to allow Afghans who have spent a long time in Sweden to have their deportation decisions reconsidered because they cannot be returned in the foreseeable future.
Please stop deportation!
