Young Afghans refused asylum in Austria, homosexual, because he was not very gay. About this reports Deutsche Welle.
The boy came to Austria in 2016, where he was sent to a holding centre for migrants. Initially, he requested asylum as a member of a minority Hazaras, but then filed a forgiveness as a homosexual. According to the lawyer, the teenager initially was afraid to open.
Officials doubted the veracity of the allegations now 18-year-old boy. According to employees of migratory service, he repeatedly fought with other refugees, although the homosexual people don’t usually “inherent aggression”. In addition, young people prefer to spend time alone or in small companies. “Unless homosexuals aren’t social?” — said the officials.
The question also gave his approval about kissing men with a traditional orientation, because for such at home he would be beaten. Unlikely considered and the age at the age of 12, where he allegedly realized his orientation.
“The way you walk, act, and dress, even in the slightest degree indicates you may be a homosexual,” — said in the report. In the end the authorities decided that the Afghans have no reason to fear for their lives at home.
The interior Ministry of Austria did not comment on the situation as the individual case “does not reflect the broader reality.” At the same time in Department noted that the asylum seekers personal impression plays an important role in the interview and decision.
In Afghanistan, homosexuality is a crime and can be punishable by death.
