Iranian LBT women due to be deported

Via KAOS GL – Turkish Supreme Court has exposed the “extra-judicial decision” by the Governor of Denizli on the deportation of Iranian LBT women. Because of their sexual orientation and religious beliefs, the Supreme Court suspended the deportation of six women from Turkey to Iran in 2014 and gave them permission to reside in Denizli with the decision of the Governor.

After being accused of working as escorts in 2017, the same Governor decided on the deportation of these women. They were placed in the Aydın Repatriation Center, were deportation proceedings have been carried out. The women have individually appealed and filed a lawsuit to cancel the Governor’s decision.
