Parliamentary questions on increasing LHBT related violence in Ukraine

Parliamentary questions on increasing LHBT related violence in Ukraine

Based on the Report of One World Ukraine: Extremely Violence in 2016 of 300%

Next Thursday, May 11, SP and GroenLinks will ask parliamentary questions about the One World Ukraine critical report which is published in the first week of May about the extreme increase of violence to LHBTs in Ukraine. LGBT Asylum Support published the English version of this report because it helps a group of LHBT asylum seekers from this country who are being threatened in the Netherlands with expulsion. This is contrary to previous reports, since October 2016, the Netherlands sees Ukraine as a safe country for LHBTs.
The report shows a massive increase of over 300% of registered reports of violence to LHBTs in Ukraine. In 2016 246 registered cases of violence to LHBTs in Ukraine. This report indicates that the country is still not safe enough and LHBT asylum seekers who come from this country
In addition to support from SP and GroenLinks, the report has been brought to the attention of UNHCR. Also COC Netherlands, Amnesty International and Human Right Watch are involved.

We have started an online petition aimed at changing the policy of the IND (Dutch migration service) towards LGBT asylum seekers. These days, many of those who apply for asylum based on sexual identity get denied protection due to unconvincing and spurious arguments.

In the petition, we ask the Dutch undersecretary for migration to set up a commission which shall look at individual cases and issue a binding decision regarding the asylum applications based on sexual identity.
