`` Lost to go on earth '' stateless men judged as refugees Tokyo High Court January 30, 4:16
In the second instance of a trial in which a former Soviet Union collapsed and a stateless man in his 50s sought refugee status, the Tokyo High Court ruled that the man would be a refugee. According to lawyers, this is the first time that a stateless person has been determined to be a refugee.
According to the complaint, a man in his 50s, who was born in Georgia today in the former Soviet era, was racist for his Armenian ethnicity and left Georgia to become stateless.
After moving from one country to another, 10 years ago, I applied to Japan for refugee status, but was rejected, filed an appeal for recognition, and was rejected in the first instance.
In a ruling of two courts on Tuesday, Judge Hiroshi Noyama of the Tokyo High Court said, "Is a stateless person who may be persecuted for racial reasons and is a refugee. It was obvious that he had lost his refugee, "revoking the disposition of the country he did not recognize as a refugee, and revoking the immigration bureau's then-compulsory deportation order.
According to the lawyer, the man's decision to judge a stateless person as a refugee is likely to be the first time, and the man said the judgment was "to be understood by the court and finally considered for the future."
The Immigration and Immigration Service issued a comment stating that "I would like to scrutinize the contents of the judgment thoroughly and respond appropriately."
