Dear Mr Emanoel Yashua,
Thank you for your email and your concern for asylum seekers and
refugees. As I am sure you are aware, we spoke to the representatives
that came to meet us in Ankara on the 21st of December by phone and
updated them on UNHCR's actions taken in regards to many of the issues
raised during our first meeting.
As explained to them UNHCR is aware of the difficult living conditions
asylum seekers and refugees are facing in Turkey, and we are doing our
best to work together with the Turkish authorities to improve these
conditions. In 2010, UNHCR in Turkey requested more funds to assist the
Office to continue to conduct refugee status determination in a fair and
efficient manner, and has substantially shortened waiting periods
throughout 2010. We will continue to try and shorten the procedures as
much as possible.
However, many of the issues you have mentioned are problems that cannot
be solved by UNHCR Turkey alone, nor can we realistically expect to
have a solution within a very short time frame. Meanwhile, UNHCR will
continue to support and advocate on behalf of all refugees and together
with Governments find a way out of the unfortunate circumstance in which
most refugees find themselves in one point of their lives.
We welcome further dialogue with these persons on the matters raised.

Dear Ms. Annika Sandlund,
My name is Emanoel Yashua. I am the head of the planning team for the
refugee protests that started last Sunday on 19 December 2010. First, I
want to thank you for holding a meeting with the refugees and discussing
the concerned issues raised by the speakers of the protesters Soheila
Zaki and Masoud Keyhan. I would like to remind you that there are only
2 days left to the one week deadline set by you to investigate the UNHCR
cases of the 12 refugees in the meeting and 6 others whose names were
not on the list but were part of the campaign.
I would like to remind you that failure to meet the legal and
legitimate demands of the protesters will result in more frustration and
therefore larger protests by Iranians not only in Ankara but in other
large cities around the world. This is to bring your attention to the
level of frustration felt by the asylum seekers in Ankara about their
experience in dealing with UNHCR. When all the legal channels are
closed, the refugees see no other way to get their voices heard but by
demonstrations. I would like to emphasize that the protests are
peaceful and limited to demands of the rights specified by the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and the refugee rights recognized by UNHCR.
We believe that what caused the protesters to want to unite and protest
was obviously violations of these rights.
Again, I would like to express my appreciation for your timely response
to the matters concerning the protesting refugees.
Name of Asylum Seekers: Masoud Keyhan, Mehdi Barar Tabar, Arezou Jalali
Asl, Hamid Jalali Asl, Alireza Jamshidi Far, Reza Salmanian, Iman

We look forward to your response
