English transcript of the interview

In recent times, criminals have continued their inhuman manner and news will be unknown without promising journalists. Whenever, a worker buried under collapsed in the mines and a woman is brutally murdered in the football stadium. Journalists broadcast voices and videos that stimulates the reaction of millions people around the world.
But when a journalist was persecuted or detained, his/her voice does not get a good echo. This time, Sahar Samet, a women rights activist and journalist, was arrested along with his father by Swedish government that expected to be deported to Afghanistan, the country well-known for its women rights violations led by Islamic extremist groups.

We have managed an interview with Sahar Samet from inside Swedish Immigration Court detention.

-Hi Dear Sahar, could you please explain how, why you were arrested and by whom?
Hi dear Mino, we have been arrested and taken to temporary detention by four Swedish armed officials at our house about 18:30 PM on 24 Feb 2015. We applied for asylum to Swedish Immigration office about four years ago, but they have turned a blind eye on all the evident documents which proves  that our life would be at great risk. We have faced problem due to “Incorrect Translation by their translators”, “Swedish Immigration Office Ignorance” and “Unawareness of Socio-Eco-Political condition in Afghanistan by Public Lawyer of Swedish Immigration Office”…
As you said, I have had various activity, and I was the voice of people. But they have told us that we decided the decision since 2012, and you have to leave Sweden.
Before that, I had met with Swedish police. I did submitted to them all of my “Justified Documents” to reassess and review my case. I had an appointment with Swedish Immigration officials, Wednesday in last week. Despite of those meeting, Swedish police called and asked me to go to the police station along with my father. They want us to present ourselves on weekly basis as a criminal. While  I am living legally in this country. And I have legal permission to live in the country till the Immigration Court decision to be met. But, they have had an inhuman attitude, and we were persecuted. They had transferred us to solitary confinement for a night and our personal belongings as cell phone were seized. They had imprisoned us in the confinement which were cold, though, we had no food about 17-18 hours. We had to ask for permission to go to the toilet or to drink some water. 
After a while, they had transferred us to “Kållered” detention in Gothenburg city. We are kept here for the verdict, and we will be deport both of us to Afghanistan without any reason as they have told us.

We have had trouble with one of the political parties in Afghanistan. It has been linked to my father activities that had forced us to leave our country. Then, I have started my open and public activities since two years ago. As a result, I am more famous at this time, and we were threatened through “Black Messages” that you will die if you come back to Afghanistan. We are at serious risk, and our life is in Swedish government hands. My father, Assadollah Samet, also have had fundamental criticism against extremist groups that have committed crime in the name of religion and culture.


I have written in several weblogs. Especially, our life also is at serious risk of all support and protection by Human Rights activists and organizations through the petitions, reports, news are done. The enemies know where we are right now and they can easily schedule to kill us.

- In the end, what is your message for international authorities, Human and Women Rights activists?
Thank you so much dear Mino. I impotently demand all Human Rights activists and organizations to support us to stay here.
I draw your attention to the recent events in Afghanistan as rape and violations against women. A girl was kidnaped and raped by the passengers of a government car from the university, after a while, she was forced to refuse the event through a vocal message by Medias.

-I have to inform you that extensive support has begun in the social networks to protect you and your father. We also follow your critical condition.

I would like to take up this opportunity to thank you and all people who follow Human Rights issues in the world. I and my father again thank you and those people who are in our side.

English Transcript of the interviews:
Conference FGM - London, February 2013
Transcript of Interviews conducted by Mino Hemati, for Farsi Satellite TV Program RahaiZan.

Q: Would you kindly introduce yourself and your organization?
A: My name is Fadela Novak I work for the UN refugee agency UNHCR, with the bureau for Europe, covering Northern Western Europe basically, and I’m a focal point for gender issues including sexual and gender based violence.
Q: Would you please let our viewers know, what brings you to this conference?
A: As I just said, as a focal point for sexual and gender based violence in the asylum system in Europe, I have been brought to look at FGM, given the growing interest at the policy and legal framing in Europe of this issue. And it was really important to make sure that refugee women and girls were fully taken into account as part of the policy consideration, the legal framework developments and all of the discussions we are having at the moment in Europe, and this was a unique opportunity to share with this audience a report that has just come out on FGM and the asylum system, providing unique statistical data and evidence on the prevalence of FGM in the asylum system of the EU.
Q: What would be your message for our Farsi speaking viewers?
A: For Farsi speakers, a main message is very much the need for us to think about how to better tailor our responses to FGM, in order to reach the various cultural backgrounds of the specific communities that we have to focus on, in order to achieve the abandonment of the practice of FGM, and in order to raise the awareness of the abuse of the human rights, and the abuse of women and girls’ rights that this practice entails. Now we do have to work in a very culturally appropriate and tailored way, and I do hope that the data we have brought today will help with that.
NEXT SPEAKER:
Q: Would you kindly introduce yourself and your organization?
A: My name is Efua Dorkenoo, I work with equality now which is a global women’s human rights organization
Q: Would you please let our viewers know, what brings you to this conference?
A: In terms of this conference, it is on FGM and I am one of the world experts on it, so I came mainly as part of the process of trying to stop genital mutilation. I gave a paper on it.
My paper looked at the data, in terms of the distribution of the problem. How big is the problem for us in the UK, also in Africa, and parts of the Middle East?  Female genital mutilation is a human rights issue, and everybody needs to have an awareness of it, and take a strong stance against it. Try to know more about it, and look at how best we can all work together to stop it.
Q: What would be your message for our Farsi speaking viewers?
A: Yes it’s something which touches everybody deeply. It’s a crime against the little girls, it touches people deeply. And everybody wants to do something about it. But I’ve been working on it for about 30 years now. It was very difficult 30 years ago to talk about it, because it has to do with the control of the woman’s sexuality. And therefore it’s very difficult for people to discuss it, because when you are really delving into it, you are talking about how women are controlled in specific cultures. So I think now, after all this work with United Nations and everything, it is easier to talk about and discuss and see what we can do about it. So everybody wants to get involved in it.

NEXT SPEAKER:
Q: Would you kindly introduce yourself and your organization?
A: My name is John Hall, I coordinate the all-party parliamentary group on FGM in the UK Parliament, and that’s why I am here today.
Q: Would you please let our viewers know, what brings you to this conference?
A: Well the conference today is very interesting, it has a lot of input from other European countries from African countries, and we are here to learn best practice from those countries on how to tackle FGM. I am here representing the parliamentary group which represents over 50 mps and lords from the UK parliament. And today has been a very useful day in terms of learning lessons, what works and what doesn’t in other countries.
Q: What would be your message for our Farsi speaking viewers?
A: The message to your Farsi viewers is that FGM is a crime, it’s a human rights abuse that blights the lives of millions of girls and women all across the world. In the Farsi speaking world, the English speaking world, the French speaking world, all across the world. And it is time that everyone pulls together and does what they can to consign this terrible practice to the history books. It’s time to end FGM forever.
