Hungary Willing To Give Asylum To Iranian Christian Girl Being Expelled From Sweden

Hungary May Take In Christian Girl Expelled From Sweden

The Millennium Monument in Heroes' Square, Budapest, Hungary

If she seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognize the girl from Iran as a refugee who the Swedish authorities intend to send back to the Islamic Republic despite the fact that her life would be in considerable danger on account of having converted to Christianity, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén, who at present also performs the duties of Prime Minister due to the fact that Viktor Orbán is currently on leave, told the newspaper Magyar Idők.

He said: if Aideen Strandsson seeks asylum in Hungary, at the end of the procedure – which naturally also involves national security screening – she may expect a favorable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.

Right from the beginning, we have differentiated between economic migrants and genuine asylum-seekers. We protect Hungary from the invasion of migrants, but we provide help for genuine refugees, those whose lives are in direct danger on account of their religion, nationality or political affiliation, Mr. Semjén said.

He added: taking in persecuted Christians is our moral and constitutional duty all at once.

He also drew attention to the fact that Christians can be easily integrated into Christian European civilization, in contrast to Muslims who do not wish to integrate.

Aideen Strandsson arrived in Sweden in 2014, and soon thereafter converted to Christianity by asking for a public baptism. Her application for asylum was recently rejected by the Swedish authorities for the second time, despite the fact that her expulsion is contrary to their own stated principles and international conventions such as the Geneva Convention which expressly prohibits countries from deporting those seeking asylum should they face direct danger upon their return, the newspaper Magyar Idők reported, citing the European civil-society portal CitizenGo.
