Sweden prepares to deport 106-year-old refugee

Bibikhal Uzbek who was born in 1910 and arguably the world’s oldest refugee is about to be deported from Sweden.

In the autumn of 2015, she received a lot of attention in the international media, when she arrived in Europe amid the peak of the refugee crisis. Today, the 106-year-old is about to get deported to her home country.

Spunik reports that Bibikhal arrived inSwedenaftera long journey which took her throughCroatia and Germany amongother countries, where she was reportedly carried onthe shoulders ofher son and grandson, it was portrayed asan idyllic finale witha happy ending.

Now, her family’s asylum application has been rejected, which means that Uzbek, who will turn 107 this autumn, will have toreturn toher home country Afghanistan.

Sweden’s Migration Board does not consider advanced age a sufficient reason forgranting asylum inand ofitself. Additionally, Bibikhal’s home region innorthern Afghanistan is considered tobe safe toreturn to.

When the message ofthe coming expulsion arrived, the old woman had a stroke; sincethen, she has been unresponsive. At present, she is bed-ridden inher family’s apartment inthe town ofHova inGullspÃ¥ng Municipality.

Expectedly, the expulsion decision triggered strong reactions fromSwedes, whose hospitality towardsimmigrants has become legendary inrecent years.
