MOSCOW, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - Members of Russia’s Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights are concerned over the situation in which some of the detained migrants have found themselves.
“In a camp for illegal migrants, who are awaiting deportation from Russia pending the court’s verdict, are Syrians, who may face death penalty in their country,” a member of Council told a news conference in Moscow, Yevgeny Bobrov, on Wednesday.
Human rights activist Svetlana Gannushkina said the court had taken a decision to deport a Syrian, while he was seeking asylum in Russia. “The Federal Migration Service’s (FMS) office has already made an appointment with him,” she said.
The Federal Migration Service retorted, saying migrants have not filed a temporary asylum request. A source from FMS told Itar-Tass on Wednesday: "No migrant has requested FMS officers for a temporary asylum so far. If the FMS receives such a bid, documents will be considered within the law."
Press service of the local police said there are currently 586 illegal immigrants in Moscow’s tent camp, who currently wait for a judicial decision regaring deportation from Russia.
