The Swedish Migration Board has decided to deport a Chinese woman who lost her residency permit when her Swedish husband filed for divorce in revenge for her reporting his repeated assaults.
The Swede is reported to have cut off her hair, shut her in a sauna, stamped on her head and then beaten her, after which he filed for a divorce.The man is reported to have cut off her hair, shut her in a sauna, stamped on her head and then beaten her, after which he filed for a divorce.
The man, who is in his sixties, was sentenced to ten months imprisonment on Tuesday for a slew of assaults on his Chinese wife whom he met over the internet.
As the man filed for divorce against his wife after she reported the attacks to the police, her right to residency and work in Sweden was revoked and the Migration Board has now ruled to deport her, and her children, to China.
“We have appealed the deportation ruling to the Migration Court,” said the woman’s lawyer, Uno Carlsson.
“But her ex-husband has also written to them and requested that she be deported from the country,” Carlsson said.
The assaults against the woman were numerous and often aggravated, according to the charges pressed against her ex-husband. The divorce meant that the woman and her children no longer had any connection to Sweden and had no legal right to remain in the country, something that she had feared all along were she to expose the attacks against her.
