Concerns a religious iranian minority being targeted by extremists due to its religious beliefs and practices has created a strong fear of persecution as well as a 우리카지노desire to seek political asylum in Austria, in particular in Germany.
Despite assurances to the contrary from Austria’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Austrian Justice Ministry has indicated that this fear of persecution will not ease soon as some Austrian citizens may also seek asylum in neighboring Germany.

In exchange, Austria would allow Schengen travel.

According to a report by Reuters, Austrian authorities received a phone call from a Syrian refugee in December in which he said he would prefer to return home to a country in which persecution was not as severe as Syria.
After his interview with the journalist, his relatives told Austrian police that they thought his comments were a sign that he was lying about his reasons for being here.
After the announcement that Europe would soon stop processing refugees, Austria’s top religious right newspaper Welt am Sonntag said that the decisio
