Japan preparing to grant asylum to Turkey Kurds

Japanese media reported on the ruling of a court in Japan recognizing a Turkish Kurdish citizen as a refugee and preventing his extradition to Turkey.

About 2,000 Turkey Kurdish citizens who have sought refuge in Japan have not been able to receive asylum so far and are in a state of uncertainty. But the Japanese media published promising news for the Kurdish immigrant citizens in this country on Tuesday, July 12.
For the first time, a court in this country has accepted the request of a Kurdish immigrant in Japan to receive asylum. Therefore, there is no longer any risk of extradition of this Kurdish citizen to Turkey.
Of course, according to the content of the case, this person was tortured by the Turkish army on the charge of providing food to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) forces. The Sapporo Local Court has agreed to his asylum request, assuming he will be prosecuted if he is extradited.
The network of Japanese immigrant lawyers has expressed hope that a similar situation will be provided for other Turkish Kurds living in Japan to prevent their extradition to Turkey.
