Gothenburg: Christian-Muslim couple from Kosovo hiding from immigration police
A couple from Kosovo are living in hiding in Gothenburg, and say they are willing to do so for the rest of their lives in order to stay in Sweden. Their asylum request has been rejected. According to the Immigration Service, there are close to 5,000 people in Sweden who were refused asylum but cannot be found to be deported.
The woman is pregnant and says it is diffiuclt, every day they think of the fact that their child will have no future.
The woman says she had been married off by her family to a man she didn't love. She was not allowed to marry the man she loved since she was Muslim and he was Christian. "The rules are that Muslims marry Muslims and Christians marry Christians," they say.
Therefore they decided to flee together to Sweden and Gothenburg. For now they're hiding from the police, and are hoping for a change to the asylum laws. Until then, they hope the Church can find them an apartment where they can hide.
