The fact that she had shown no effort in the face of the acute threat of eviction indicates a “certain lack of interest in adapting to the local situation”.
A woman from Kosovo living in the canton of Aargau does not even want to try to learn the language of the new country where she has lived for many years now, German.
For this reason, the authorities did not want to extend the residence permit of the lady, transmit albinfo. But the case ended in the highest court of the Swiss judiciary, the Federal Court, based in Lausanne.
There it is now decided: It will be treated only under immigration law.
In a verdict published on Thursday, the judges of Lausanne informed her “in every possible way” that she was expected to implement the remarks made in this procedure, writes sda.ch. Alternatively, she may await a revocation or non-renewal of her residence permit.
In its ruling, the Federal Supreme Court emphasizes the importance of language ability to be able to integrate into society. In this respect, it is a matter of weighty public interest that is also recognized by international human rights conventions.
However, the private interest of the affected in this case currently still prevails. And according to him, she is allowed to stay in Switzerland, where she has lived since December 2015 with her husband – also from Kosovo – and their common son, four and a half years old.
But, if the permit is not renewed, it can be assumed that the husband would stay in Switzerland, where he worked for the same employer for ten years, reports albinfo.ch. For the child, this actually meant that he could only grow up with one of the two parents.
Despite the agreement signed for integration and subsequent repeated requests from the Migration Office in Aargau, the woman who was now warned has not yet given evidence of language proficiency. According to the Federal Court, she “consistently” refused to “make any attempt to learn German”.
This “non-cooperative attitude” has lasted for years. The fact that she had shown no effort in the face of the acute threat of eviction indicates a “certain lack of interest in adapting to the local situation”.
