OTTAWA – Canada is giving some failed asylum seekers from Russia a chance to stave off deportation, saying conditions in that country have changed.The Immigration Department says reports of violence against the LGBTQ community in Chechnya mean people could be at risk if they’re forced to return.The department says that means people from Russia may now be eligible for a pre-removal risk assessment if they received a final decision on their case between July 1, 2016, and June 30 of this year.The PRRA, as it is known, allows those slated for deportation to argue they cannot be sent back to their country of origin for safety reasons.Currently, people whose asylum claims are not accepted can’t apply for a PRRA for at least 12 months, but the immigration minister has the authority to exempt some or all people from that restriction.Refugee advocates have been pushing the Liberal government to make it easier for members of the Russian LGBTQ community to get to and stay in Canada after reports emerged earlier this year that gay and bisexual men were being imprisoned and tortured in Chechnya.The Liberals had condemned what they called “serious human rights violations” back in the spring and urged Russia to investigate, but stopped short of meeting the demands for a targeted asylum program aimed at those trying to get out of the country.The Immigration Department announced the change in policy Friday.“Reports of violence against members of the LGBTQ2 community in Chechnya has resulted in a change of country conditions within the Chechen Republic in Russia,” the notice said.“As a result, individuals from Russia are exempted from the one-year bar on accessing a PRRA as individuals could face a situation of risk that may warrant an additional assessment. It is important to note that the ability to apply for PRRA does not guarantee the outcome of the risk assessment.”The department also says that those who have not received a final decision on their claim as of June 30 will still be barred from applying for the assessment, as current country conditions will be taken into account when the decision is made on their claim.

Contrary to legal requirements, the Media Evaluation Commission was not consulted about his arrest.“While the press is required to respect Afghanistan’s official religion, authorities cannot assume the right to arrest those who peacefully express their views about Islam,” the press freedom organisation said. “We also regret that the authorities again failed to respect the laws in force concerning press offences.”Pointing out that Nasab poses no danger to Afghanistan’s security, Reporters Without Borders called on the public prosecutor’s office to release him on bail as soon possible.This is not the first time that religious leaders have had journalists arrested. Sayeed Mahdawi and Ali Reza Payam of the weekly Aftab were arrested in August 2003 and then threatened with death sentences by the supreme court after publishing articles criticism religious extremists.In Nasab’s case, two articles in particular provoked the ire of Shiite clerics. One criticised the severity of Islamic law, especially the punishment of 100 lashes for those found guilty of adultery. The other suggested that abandonment of Islam could not be considered a crime. Afghan conservatives are currently campaigning for the adoption of the penalties envisaged by the Sharia.A number of conservative leaders had pressed Mohaiuddin Baluch, President Hamid Karzai’s adviser on religious affairs, for sanctions to be taken against Haqoq-e-Zan. Baluch took the view that the articles were “directly contrary to the principles of the Koran.” The supreme court president reportedly asked the public prosecutor to open an investigation. And it was then that the prosecutor ordered Nasab’s arrest.Aged 50, Nasab was at first held in the Kabul police station, but was transferred to the city’s main prison after an initial interrogation. The prosecutor said he had no Afghan identity document.
