Jordanian authorities have demanded the prominent refugee woman Hasna al-Hariri and her two sons to depart Jordan within 14 days or they will be summarily deported to Syria.
Al-Hariri told Zaman al-Wasl that she has no chance to challenge their removal amid risk of being arrested by Syrian regime security if Jordan denied her need for international protection as a refugee.
Over the past years, Jordan has collectively expelled groups of refugees, denied people suspected of security violations due process, and ignored the real threats deportees face upon return to Syria, according to Human Rights Watch.
HRW warns that sending people back to Syria without making sure they wouldn’t face a real risk of torture or serious harm and unless they have had a fair opportunity to plead their case for protection.
