Decision to deport threatened woman criticised
Amnesty International is criticising Sweden’s decision to deport a young mother and her son to Turkey, despite her father threatening to kill her if she returns, for dishonouring her family.
The woman currently lives in a safe house after threats from her brother, who also lives in Sweden.
She says she had a boyfriend in Turkey who her father wouldn’t accept and she was forced to marry a relative, before she fled to Sweden.
Immigration officials believe the woman could be protected just as well in her homeland, but human rights campaigners disagree.
