SOHR | “Media reports of Denmark deporting Syrian refugees untrue”

In response to reports circulated on Syrian media suggesting that Syrian refugees in Denmark face the risk of deportation to Damascus and other areas considered safe by the Danish government, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) has communicated with official bodies with the Danish government, which confirmed to SOHR that the Danish government does not recognize the Syrian regime in the first place, still less of deporting asylum seekers in Denmark.

The same sources explained to SOHR that the matter does not include any deportation of any Syrian, and it is all about not renewing the asylum files of those coming from Damascus and its countryside, who have applied for asylum because of the war in their areas, and not because of their opposition to the regime, and from a certain group of women and men who have exceeded the age of military conscription, and therefore no risk for them in case they return without, which does not mean that they will get deported from Denmark.

The source concluded that the return of Syrians to their country is voluntary, and it is not true that the Danish government provided financial compensation in return for return to Syria.
