A Refugee Applicant's Lawsuit Seeking to Cancel the Deportation Order : The Seoul Administration Court Rules in Favor of the Plaintiff
The plaintiff applied for refugee status in Korea in July 2011, in order to avoid the persecution in his own country. He is now in the process of appealing the Korean government’s refusal to grant him refugee status. In February 2013, when the plaintiff was caught working without a permit, he received a deportation order by the Seoul Immigration Office and was detained at the Hwaseong Detention Center.
