IS women sue Sweden: “Violates our human rights”

Published 19 February 2021 at 18.03

“We believe that Sweden’s failure to bring Swedish women and children home from the camps in northeastern Syria is a violation of their human rights. As representatives of a number of women and children in the Roj camp, we therefore complain today to the European Court and claim that Sweden has a human rights obligation to bring them home to Sweden “, writes star lawyer Percy Bratt, lawyer for IS women, in Today’s Law.

UN activists have previously claimed that Sweden has a human rights “obligation” to retrieve IS fighters who have Swedish passports, and Bratt now hopes that the government will do so voluntarily.

“Hopefully, Sweden will also soon respond to the call from the UN to take responsibility and help these people home. The Swedish women and children in the camps are completely dependent on the Swedish state’s intervention to save them from the terrible situation they are in.” , writes Bratt.
