Derdiye Kül in Sweden faces deportation after her asylum applications were rejected and is claiming she could be sentenced to life imprisonment if she was to be sent to Turkey and adding that she is worried for her childrens future, Jin News reports.
Asylum seekers in Sweden argue that their case files have not been properly examined after hundreds of them are facing deportation threats after their applications were rejected. Derdiye Kül is one of them. She has been living in Sweden for the last six years and had to migrate there after facing political pressure in Turkey.
Derdiye arrived in Sweden from Iraq in 2015 and still lives in the Stugun region of Jämtland County, Sweden. Although she had applied for asylum when she first settled in the country, she did not receive a response for five years.
Then, years later her asylum claim was denied by the Swedish Migration Agency (SMA).
”I received no response to my asylum application for the first 5 years on the grounds that “it’s not your turn yet” and then my application was flatly rejected twice in a month. Finally, I was asked to leave the country. During those years I requested to go to school to learn the language, I requested to work but all of these requests were refused. Although all my documents were original, they rejected my asylum application years later on the grounds that the documents I submitted were not certified copies,” she explains.” I can not go back to Turkey”, she adds “If I am returned to Turkey, I will definitely face life imprisonment there, along with torture.”
Derdiye, facing the threat of deportation, claimed that the Swedish court insistently asked for her identity. “My ID is in the hands of the Turkish government, but still they constantly ask me for it,” she noted.
”Wherever I apply here, I get refusals repeatedly. I have three kids and one of them is a baby. I have no relatives here, I am alone with my children. They will stay alone if I am to be deported.”
