Hungary May Take In Iranian Christian Convert Woman Expelled From Sweden

Aideen Strandsson is an Iranian Christian facing deportation by Sweden back to certain danger in Iran.

Good for Hungary!

Hungary Prime Minister’s Office: “If she seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognise 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 favourable ruling as Hungary does not send anyone back to a country where his or her life or physical well-being may be in danger.”

An Iranian Christian actress facing deportation from Sweden to Iran has been offered asylum by the Hungarian government.

CBN News was first to report that Sweden had rejected Aideen Strandsson’s appeal for asylum and turned her case over to Swedish border police for eventual deportation to Iran, where experts say Strandsson faced certain prison and rape, and possibly death.

Her deportation would be a clear violation of the Geneva Convention on Refugees.

The Hungarian government learned of her story and anounced on its official website that if Strandsson “seeks help in Hungary, the Hungarian State is ready to recognize the girl from Iran as a refugee…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.”

The government announcement added, “…(W)e provide help for genuine refugees, those whose lives are in direct danger on account of their religion, nationality or political affiliation. Taking in persecuted Christians is our moral and constitutional duty all at once.”  CBN
