MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) – Russia will grant temporary asylum to an Afghan young woman, who converted into Christianity, the Federal Migration Service (FMS) told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
Several media have made reports before that Afghan young woman Ruya Ivaz Ali will be allegedly deported to the homeland, where he will face capital punishment over the change of creed.
The Federal Migration Service noted that Afghan young woman Ruya Ivaz Ali arrived in Russia with her family in the middle of 2011 from Tajikistan, where the family lived for several years.
“In August 2011 the head of the family requested to find him as a refugee in Russia. However, after the request was considered neither a plaintiff nor members of his family in Afghanistan were exposed to manhunt from the state authorities over political motives, race, religious creed, citizenship, belonging to some social group. The reasons, for which they left Afghanistan, were obviously household,” the Federal Migration Service said, noting that “the family was denied to be recognized as refugees, then was denied temporary asylum.”
Meanwhile, in the process of considering this request it turned out that the applicants produced for identification the documents, which were processed for false names, the service said.
The parents of Ruya Ivaz Ali left her, going away from the Perm Territory. Their whereabouts are unclear yet. Staying alone, Ruya Ivaz Ali requested herself to find her as a refugee in Russia, substantiating her request with the change of religious creed. She stated that she did so to stay in Russia.
The FMS department in the Perm Territory denied her to be recognized as a refugee. She did not appeal this decision according to the standard procedure, but took advantage of her right and applied for temporary asylum in Russia.
“Taking into account the circumstances, in which Ruya Ivaz Ali happened to be, FMS believes that now her comeback to the homeland is impossible without the care of parents and adult members of the family, and the granting of temporary asylum to her in Russia is a humane decision in this situation,” FMS said.
