Fifteen LGBT Syrian refugees, living in Turkey, launched a legal claim against the UK Home Office on Monday. The group claim the British government has abandoned them despite assurances they will be brought to the UK.
The 15 refugees were accepted by the Home Office onto a resettlement scheme that curtails the lengthy asylum process, the Guardian reported. But many of them have now been waiting more than two years to be brought to the UK, as opposed to the two or three months it takes other European countries to resettle refugees on similar schemes.
