Since High educated but never could work as professional, since she was discriminated because of religion and ethnicity was not the origin of the country she was born. And I can submit a file, as NOT detailed affidavit. Our goal is to fix the statement and bring to the new updated views where a reader can understand why she is seeking for asylum, and it needs to be believable. This is not real story, but we need to work on the case and search the country condition and new terms since last time she was in immigration office and nor after six years she has to go the court and condition have been changedSome tip:1. she could not leave the country as soon it started because she has 2 minor kids2. She never could get a job because she was not native nationality of the country and by religion, she practice (Russian arthodox)3. Our work is from the weak statement of the applicant make a strong Statement (as we doing for our selves) imagine it is us… Not for someone but as she is Me…4. Search similar asylum case statements5. when she write her first statement she did not get any help, so now, we are as a professionals need to work on that case nad make nice case/statement of applicant and make her to be granted asylum status in the court….Recommendations:In order to demonstrate that you are entitled to asylum, you must first show that you meet the definition of a “refugee” – that is, that you cannot return to your home country because you had been persecuted there or because you fear persecution there in the future.You must show that this persecution was (or would be) inflicted on you because of one or more “protected grounds”: your race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.Finally, you must show that you were persecuted by your country’s government (for example, police, army, or government officials) or by a non-governmental group that your government is unwilling or unable to control.To qualify for asylum, you must prove every element of your asylum claim.To increase your chances of demonstrating that you meet these factors, provide detailed, honest, and consistent information about yourself. Make sure to include sufficient information about your race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, tribal and clan membership, or political affiliations – explaining how you were (or would be) hurt or threatened because of a “protected ground.” Include names of people and places, as well as dates when relevant. If you cannot remember specific dates, try to include the month and the year (if you can remember them accurately). Make sure that all of the information you provide is accurate to the best of your ability. Do not try to guess any details if you cannot remember them.In explaining why you are seeking asylum, you must include detailed information about yourself: how you personally were harmed in the past, why you are afraid to return, why you were harmed, and what you believe would happen to you if you had to return to your home country. Do not simply write general statements.Although you should also include some information about your friends and family members who have also been persecuted, your application must focus on you. Also, explain how the person(s) persecuting you did so because of one or more of the “protected grounds.” You will not qualify for asylum if you were being hurt for personal reasons only. (A protected ground does not have to be the only reason why you were persecuted, as long as it was one of the reasons you were — or would be — hurt.)You should attach your written declaration to your asylum application. That way, you can provide many more details than you can include on Form I-589 alone. This will help the asylum officer or an Immigration Judge better understand why you are applying for asylum.Attaching documents will greatly increase your chances of obtaining asylum. U.S. law requires that you produce all reasonably available evidence helping to explain what had happened to you or what would happen to you if you returned. Such evidence might include the following, depending on your specific case: student identification cards; union membership cards; political or religious group membership cards; pictures of your injuries; newspaper articles about you (or about your family or friends or others in situations similar to yours); hospital records; and any complaints you had made about your persecution. If you cannot produce such documents, you should explain why not.Your claim will also be evaluated against evidence of human rights conditions in your home country. Therefore, you should include reports about your country from sources such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, or the U.S. State Department. Make sure that your personal application details are consistent with those reports.TRANSLATION 0F DECLARATION BY SURAIYO AHIWEDOVA

of my parents’ residence. The money I got fi’om my condominium I invested to a
small business — purchasing and Sales of apparel and perfumes. Because of the
deficit of these products in my cormtry, the products that I brought fi-om other

26. We worked long hours and enjoyed our work. We paid fee for license and our
taxes. We made a lot of donations buying cloth, toys and fruits for children’s
shelters, as well as helped retirement homes. Because of the terrible situation in
the country, children and old people suffered thermost.
27. When our business was barely open, we had been visited by numerous oflicials
from the government authority. They were
to us like “flies to honey”.
We were visited by the policemen, representatives fiom “Chalcimat” ——
municipdity and internal revenue services. Under cover of regular inspections to
check whether we are not violating any rules, they were extorting difi‘erent
amounts of money and, sometimes, even our products. They motivated their
extortions explaining that they have to share with higher authorities in Tashkent.

29. Whenmy dnghterstartedhm’university, she immediately received request for
hypercritic gastritis, I could not let her participate in the cotton collection because
I knew in what conditions she would work. At the time of Soviet Union, children
were provided a food and a decent place to stay during their work there. If child
could not participate in the cotton collection due to his/her health condition,
he/she would get released from the work afier providing medical certification
regarding the health condition. We went to the medical clinic for students. The
doctors refused to provide the medical evaluation and tests. They ignored our
request stating that everyone must participate in the cotton collection. I did not

liver), as well as various kidneys and lungs deceases. There were cases of Typhus
Abdominalis, because the drinking water provided to the children was very dirty,
and there were no means to boil it as there were no gas, electricity or possibility to
– make a fire. When I requested the administration of her Imiversity to release my
daughter from the cotton collection due to her health conditions, I was advised

30. In the next two years I had to pay money so my daughter would not participate in
the cotton collection. Only God knows how difficult it was for me. The most of
all it was very difficult for me psychologically as it was against my beliefs. I paid
money for which I worked very hard, and for what? — To release my daughter
from slavery labor.
31. In September 2003 I could not pay money to the university any more (I was
tired). I could not afl‘ord to pay anymore. Because it was the last grade in
Zarina’s university, we decided that she would participate in the cotton collection.
My daughter was sent to work at the cotton plant by her university. I had to buy
a lot of warm clothes as well as food because there was no nutrition provided for
“free slaves” there. Two weeks afier my daughter was sent to the plant, I bought
more food, got a taxi and went to visit her.
32. The horrible conditions that I saw at the cotton collection camp shocked me. I
‘ never saw such a drastic treatment of children in reality — only in horror movies.
Theyhadtobeatworkat6100 a.m.,buttheyhadto walkfor 1.5 hours to the

conditions, my daughter got seriously sick. Her face was yellow she got cold. I
decided to pick my daughter up from the camp despite negative comments from
SNS (Services .of National Security). Despite that in the country were a lot of
unemployed people who would want to work at the cotton plant for money, the
SNS were forcing students and other children to work at the cotton plant for free.
33. When my daughter came back from the camp, she was very sick. It took her a
long time to recover because her gastritis worsened and there was a high risk that
it would progress to ulcer. In addition, a few times she had suffered fiom
suffocation due to her allergy. As a result of her early termination from the camp,
my daughter got expelled fiom the university. I had to
a dean of the
university and ask him written response to my inquiry, or a law regarding
students’ participation in the cotton activities despite their health conditions. He
refused to provide me with any written explanations stating that his actions are
consistent with instructions from the Ministry of Education, but he mentioned that
I can complain to the “Chakim” – Mayor.
34. We were devastating. The hopeless gray days began. . . The extorters from our
city and county authorities made this situation even worse. While having a job
and making money, I could not afford to support my family. As to think about
some vacations or travels was impossible at all. During the cotton collection
season, we were visited by two representatives of the government: one from the
SNS, and the other from “Chokimat”. They were collecting money fi’om
employees of om business for the cotton collection. They
money in the
amount equal to $200. I decided that I would not pay anymore. It would be
better to give away money to the needy people who we had a lot in our country.
l openly said we would not pay any money in addition to the required government
TWO days later my partner was summoned to the “Chokimat” where he was
clearly advised that if he would continue working with me at the store, he would
have problems: the business would be eventually closed and the products would
be confiscated. What are they – Nliddle Age robbers? From the moment I heard
that, I could not stop protesting.
I decided to fight for my rights. I, probably,
thought that the higher authorities did not know what municipal government was
doing to the citizens. Even Jesus Christ said: “Knock at the door and it will be
open.” I decided to submit a detailed letter about all the violations of the
studems’ and citizens’ rights, and extortions that were trying to sufl’ocate us; as
well as about the traditions that force our children Imdersumd from their

At the office that we entered
I met another man without uniform. He did not introduce himself, and even now I
do not know who he was. In a rude manner he started to ask me why I defamed
the government and what exactly I wanted. He told me that this is Uzbekistan and
if people of other nationalities do not like Uzbek government, they can leave to
where they want; and if I would do something else like that, at first, I would have
to think about my children and myselfl Then he clearly stated that “Uzbekistan is
for Uzbeks. Uzbeks like everything here”. I lost my self-control and told to that
country. In response to that he pushed a button under his table. The security

problem with the cotton collection was solved again with money, but this time it
was $500. This was our annual income.
37. During the fall of 2004 it was hard to find any job, even with low salary, and
impossible if you were not Uzbek. Uzbeks who graduated from a college could
become teachers in the same college. Non-Uzbek people could not find a job

40. I wrote a complaint and signed it with a few neighbors who were the most
determined persons. One of my neighbors and I went to the Committee with this
complaint. When we came there we had a meeting with one of the representatives
there. He told us that it is not a good idea to complain on the government and
refused to register the complaint at all. In response to our question: “Who would
protect our rights and explain us what we were charged for, who would help us to
solve the problems between citizens and the government?” — He just made us
41. Four days later, I got a visit from a policeman who requested me to show my
passport. He took my passport and requested to follow him. He escorted me to
Department of Internal Afliairs. We went to the second floor and
entered an oflice where I met two persons: one more policeman in uniform and
another man without uniform. They were reviewing my passport. I was standing
‘ in front of them silently. Then one of them asked me in Uzbek language: “Why
amIalways complainingandinvolving other peopleto dothat?” Iaskedhim
whatexactly he means. They told me thatIshould knowthatlamalways
everything what is going on. I asked whether I should like when my children

whether I should like paying extra money for nothing; whether I should like that

jobs and wearing their uniforms becausa of taxpaych like me. Why they do not
protect us as they should? I also stated that I do not wish work to support them or
their authorities. They listened to me silently. Then one of them asked me why I
think that I have a right to speak this way about the government and who is
behind my back. I responded to him that I am not against the government, but
against the corruption in the government. We all improving our live together and
I want to improve the life of my family too. The officer in the uniform yelled that
I have no right to improve the life, only our President can do that. Then they
asked: “Do you know Mirjalola Mirsandova — one of you Tajiks who are
unsatisfied with the government?” I understood that he was talking about one

43. It was already late night. I barely managed to get home. My children were worry
about me. They were waiting for me outside. They did not know where I was
and what happened with me. By the morning my health condition worsened and I
lost my conscious. My children called the emergency car and brought me to the
private hospital “Doctor Plus” where I had clinic death two times.

strong kick. I underwent an emergency surgery. I was discharged after about a
week. My doctors saved my life, but refused to record the causation of my
trauma as they did not want to have problems with authorities.
44. At that time I did not care about it anymore. Where and who I would complain?
4:5. Afier sometime, the director of the library, where I was employed at that time,
told me that she has to fire me as she got an order fi’Om the higher authorities
because of my behavior and Opinion that contradicts to the politics of our
government and democratic development of our country. I quit job voluntarily.

They scarred me a lot with their criminal acts. Russian police was inefi‘ecn’ve and
inattentive in the prevention of their activities. Russian nationalism and their
willingnws to turn refugees back to their countries stopped me fiem even thinking
to ask for asylum there. I believed that even if I would apply for asylum there, I
would be refused it. Also, if we would apply for the asylum in Russia, we would
be proclaimed as traitors in Uzbekistan. Being illegally in Russia and have no
possibility to stay there, I decided to return to Uzbekistan.
