Letter to
Migration Board - Asylum department in Sweden
We are respectfully request migration board to immediate halt the deportation of the following 3 Iranian asylum-seekers:
1) Mr. Hossein Jasbi (case # 11- 421539) a Marxist anti-regime activist and member of a banned political organization in Iran (Fedaeyin Minority); an outspoken activist against the Islamic Republic regime in Sweden, with numerous broadcast interviews; a member of a family that is targeted for state-sponsored violence: his brother and sister were executed by the regime and his father imprisoned.
2) Mr. Ali Azari Balsi (case # 11-420529) Islamic regime executed his father, Shokhrollah Azari a worker activist. A political activist who has participated in and organized numerous anti-regime protest actions in Sweden, an active bloger (http://aliazaribalsi.wordpress.com/).
3) Mr. Mohammadreza Hamedian Esfahani (Maxim) (case # 11- 084450) – a Christian convert family (wife and two children) with political activities in last two years.
Each of the three should be immediately released from detention and recognize as refugee and benefiters from international or subsidiary protection. It is violation of asylum rights for any country including Sweden to deport a person who has a legitimate fear of persecution in home country. On 3/09/2010, in the case of R. c. v. Sweden (application no. 41827/07), the European Court of Human Rights found that deporting an Iranian dissident to Iran would be a violation of Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, “No one shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.” Despite this finding, migration board continues to attempt to deport Iranian activists like Jasbi, Balsi, Esfahani, and others, all of whom are clearly and undeniably at risk of arbitrary detention and torture by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Unfortunately Mr. M.S.N Case # 11-365557 has been deported by migration board to Iran on 10 March 2012 and he was arrested by Iranian government upon his arrive and until now his family couldn’t able to meet him. Migration board trying deporting political asylum seekers to Iran at a time when executions are happening on a near-daily basis, sometimes several a day. Among those to be deported includes a convert to Christianity to a country that intends to execute Christian convert Mr. Yousef Nadarkhani solely due to his religious conversion!
