2. 23 Yemeni asylum seekers granted 1-year stay in South Korea

기사요약: 제주출입국·외국인청은 예멘 난민 심사 대상자 484명 중 지난 13일까지 면접을 완료한 440명 가운데 영유아 동반 가족과 임산부, 미성년자, 부상자 등 23명에 대한 인도적 체류를 허가하기로 했다고 9월 14일 밝혔다. 이에 제주 난민 인권을 위한 범도민 위원회는 “인도적 체류허가는 이름과 달리 인도적인 결정이 아니다”면서 “취업 허가만 주어질 뿐 의료보험을 포함한 4대 보험과 교육을 받을 권리, 자유롭게 여행할 권리 등 모든 사회적 권리가 배제되어 있다”고 비판했다.

[1] A total of 23 Yemeni asylum seekers – many of them minors -- have been granted a one-year stay in Korea, the Jeju Immigration Office said Friday. The Jeju Immigration Office, however, did not grant legal refugee status to any of the Yemeni applicants.

*grant: 허가하다

[2] The 23 are among some 500 Yemenis who have arrived on the country’s southernmost island of Jeju since January, fleeing a civil war in their home country. Some 440 of them have applied for asylum status in South Korea and the 23 are the first to receive their results.

*flee: 도망치다
*civil war: 내전
*asylum status: 난민 신청

[3] The status given to the 23 Yemenis -- “humanitarian stay permits” -- are issued when an asylum seeker fails to establish eligibility for refugee status in Korea, but considered to have a need to stay in the country for other circumstances, such as armed conflicts back home and health conditions.

*humanitarian stay permit: 인도적 체류 허가
*eligibility: 자격
*armed conflict: 무력분쟁
