Migration Board in Sweden: Let the ill 82-years old woman stay in Sweden with her only daughter

      Zinaida Belonoshko

      uppsala, Sweden

Nadezda has Leukemia and gets medication every day. She is 82 years old and has a number of diseases, some age related and some due a tough shingles (bältros) she had suffered during the summer of 2012.

Nadezdas only relatives, her daughter (Zinaida), her son-in-law (Anatoliy) and grandchild (Julia) live in Sweden since 1990. Nadezdas great grandchild is expected in March 2013.

The Swedish migration board has denied Nadezdas application to stay her last years in Sweden with her relatives. Swedish migration law considers relationship between mother and daughter not close enough to let her stay here. Swedish migration board says that the diseases Nadezd has are not deadly.

Nadezda has been taken care of by her daughter in her daughters house all the time.

      My dearest friends, your lines are warming my heart and you give me a power to fight for my mother!
      The last two months the following happened:
      After the final decision in July, we were invited to visit Migration Board to discuss her return to Russia. We could not come (this is another city, 1 hour to drive), because my mother was getting worse in August. She visited a doctor and left a blood test. It showed the number of leukocytes 5 times than normal. She got a medical certificate that I sent to Helena W. at Migration Board Sept, 4 and got an answer that it will be sent to the authorities to consider the possibility of an inhibition. But Helena W. DID NOT send it and moreover, the same day she handed the case over to the polis to enforce deportation. We got information from the police that there is no cetrificate registered in my mother's case. I contacted our legal adviser and the paper was finally delivered Oct,4 .
      We are waiting for their decision now.

      at 82 a person has the right to dignity and unity with family--this woman is ill and the probability of her living a long and burdensome life that would affect Swedish social services are minimal.
