They need asylum...Why can't the world get together on this and help provide opportunity for reparation and peace in this increasingly war-torn world.....what the world needs now is P E A C E and L O V E .

I see this petition comes from Amnesty International UK,Norway have investigated this case and found that Genci Angjellari and his family does not fill the requirements to achieve political asylum in Norway.Albania is not Siria and Norway have already taken more than 10 000 refugies from Siria,I suspect this is another case of someone who is fleeing his Country for economic reasons more than a real treath to his and his familly.Norway is not able to allow asylum to everybody but we are doing much more than our fair share.What is the real truth is difficult to find and jf Amnesty International UK is so worried why don't let him go to UK and let see how he'll be treathed there.

And that may be the only option to this couple is go to the UK. It doesn't appear to be economic conditions if he is investigative journalist and opened up a can of worms onto himself. They do dangerous work. But is my feeling that if he has legal right to an appeal, which it appears he does, then in my mind let them be able to stay until that option completes. If he is truthful, it may allow the family a bit of time to gain some protection for themselves. Even if they do not win, by setting something up for when he does move back by keeping a low profile somewhere within his own Country.

He appealed Norways decission all the way to the Suprime Court and when they denied him and his family political asylum he took his family to the nearest church to seek avoidence from the police,when the police finally took the step to forcefully send them back to Albania he managed to escape and now the police can't find them for the time beeing.He tried Norways legal system to it fullest degree and when that didn't help he fled to the church and now at last he's fleeing from the police which makes him a renegade.Norwegian Law Officers have more important things to do than running around after him and his family.
As I mentioned in my earlier post,more than 10 000 war refugees have arrived this year only,they need to be registered,fed,clothed and given a place to live and Norways ressources are spread to the limit.

If Amnesty International UK thinks that Norway will change it's decission after what he have done since his last legal appeal was turned down I can tell you that we may have been born at night but it wasn't last night.

I've sent an e-mail to Amnesty Internasjonal in Norway to get some more info from them and/or if they support this petition from the UK office.
Neverther the less Genci Angjellari will be sent back to Albania and his option is to go to any Embassy to seek a work permit.If he can obtain any favours from his Norwegian friends he can return that way,He and his wife are well educated and if he can find a Country willing to accept him and his family that is his options now.As Albania is not part of the EU it will be difficult for him knowwing his past history from Norway and I don't see the USA beeing much of an option either.
"Anyways" I'll mail you the answer from Amnesty Internasjonal in Norway.

Sheryl,here is the answer I got from Amnesty International Norway:


Takk for din henvendelse til Amnesty International. Vi vil svare på henvendelsen så raskt som mulig og senest innen to uker.

Vennlig hilsen
Amnesty International


Thank you for contacting Amnesty International. We will respond to your inquiry as quickly as possible and no later than two weeks.

Best regards,
Amnesty International

So at the longest it will take 2 weeks before I hear from them again.

The petition read he was still waiting for the that has been completed, perhaps the petition should be removed by the UK Amnesty International; as it's misleading. They can make another petition to find them a safe harbour in the storm or something. Let us know what they write back.

Arild W (174)

Of course I will Sheryl and as soon as Amnesty writes back to me we can all conclude what went on in this case.All the info I relayed to all of you was found in different Norwegian newspapers so that's why I wrote to Amnesty International in Norway to get the complete picture.If it's true that he and his family are now running from Norwegian Law Offiisers it will not help their case in any western Country,but I will not conlude before I get the answer from Amnesty International in Norway.That answer will be posted on this tread at that time.

I did not sign the petition because I naturally had faith that Norway had its reasons for denying this couple asylum. Then I read Arild's posts and feel she got it right. I have reticence in telling other cultures what they should be doing when America has not got its act together very well these days. Should we be telling any other country how to behave, especially toward immigrants, when our Congress has voted to make it impossible for immigrants to be welcomed into our own land. What hypocrites that makes us, doesn't it?
