Cobalt, acting pro bono, has successfully assisted a Belarusian journalist seeking asylum in obtaining refugee status in Latvia.

According to Cobalt, its client "was forced to leave Belarus due to persecution against her as a journalist. The Office of Migration and Citizenship Affairs agreed with arguments provided in the application drafted by Cobalt and has acknowledged that the asylum seeker complies with criteria on granting a refugee status in the Republic of Latvia as set out in the UN Convention on the Status of Refugees and Asylum Law."

Cobalt’s team was led by Associate Marija Berdova.
