Petitioning the Swedish migration Minister tobias billström

Save Laetitia (a transwoman being deportated to Russia)

Laetitia is a woman with trans background from Russia. In Russia, she faced harassment and violence on a daily basis. She was treated inhumanely in the police station, beaten up and urinated on by the officers. She sought asylum in Sweden three years ago. She fears that violence, spearheaded by Russian government towards LGBT people will continue upon her return to Russia. Moreover, she is active in LGBT movement, promoting normalization of trans people. New Russian laws hinder her activism to the point that she will face huge fines while being completely excluded from daily life. But Swedish Migration Board rejected her asylum. By deporting her back, Sweden wants to put her in the situation when she can be killed or forced to commit suicide. Please sign this petition to support Laetitia's fight for asylum and to make Swedish Migration Board understand the danger that LGBT people face in countries like Russia.
