Sverdlovsk region deports 833 foreign residents

The Sverdlovsk Region Service of Court Officers announced last week that the Sverdlovsk region's court system deported 833 foreign residents in 2013.

In total, the court system heard 863 cases for deportation during the year pertaining to 863 different individuals. As of Jan. 1, the courts had issued deportation orders for 792 of the foreign residents, Ural Business Consulting reports.

"What makes the process difficult is that these foreigners do not have any ID, so no tickets can be purchased for them," said the Sverdlovsk Region Service of Court Officers, according to Ural Business Consulting. "Sverdlovsk Region court officers directed 115 applications for documents to the authorities in January through December 2013, but only 70 illegal immigrants were issued the documents in question. It should be noted that this has to do with the fact that countries whose citizens got deported most do not operate their consulates in the Sverdlovsk region."
