Authorities of the German Federal state of Hesse will return to the country of a Russian citizen deported because of a procedural error. It is reported by local broadcaster Hessischer Rundfunk.
As said by the lawyer men, this should happen in the coming weeks. The relevant decision of the court of appeal was rendered in October, but previously, it was reported.
The man filed in Germany for asylum in 2015, along with his mother. In it they pointed out that belong to the religious minority Yazidis, ethnic Kurdish ethnic group and because of this are facing prosecution in Russia.
13 Nov 2017 after the refusal of asylum, the man was expelled from the city Biedenkopf, where he lived. It is noted that his mother’s deportation was to be, he was forced to leave her in Germany.
However, it turned out that the final decision on expulsion was not taken by law: Russians simply have not received the letter with the verdict in the case of asylum, and therefore did not know about the failure and was unable to challenge it at the time. Because of this, his lawyer appealed to the court of appeal, which recognized the deportation illegal.
Hessischer Rundfunk says that the postman who had to deliver the letter, put a note “could not find the recipient at the specified address”. The court found that the Russians all this time lived in a hostel for asylum seekers in Biedenkopf.
