European court upholds Swedish asylum ruling

Published torsdag 27 juni 2013 kl 10.24
The European Court of Human Rights

The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Sweden did not breach the European Convention of Human Rights when it turned down asylum requests from eight Iraqis who claim they risk being persecuted if they return to Iraq.

Two of the asylum applicants said they risk becoming victims of honour crimes in Iraq. The other six say they risk being persecuted because they belong to the Christian minority.

Both the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR and Amnesty International have previously criticised Swedish extraditions of Christian Iraqis.
