After Heavy Criticism: Migration Board Lets Cancer Patient Stay

Published onsdag 3 juni 2009 kl 09.48
Sweden's Migration Board

Widespread criticism has caused the Swedish Migration Board to withdraw its decision to expel a 30-year-old man from Azerbaijan who is severely suffering from cancer. The board had based the deportation order on the fact that the man’s appeal for political asylum had been refused earlier.

Doctors who are treating the man had pointed out that he would not have a chance to survive in his home country and that his survival depends on a continued chemotherapy in Sweden. After Swedish Radio had taken up the case the head of the migration board’s judicial department overruled the earlier decision by local board officials and said that the man would be allowed to stay.
