The first group of Christian refugees from Iraq could arrive in the Czech Republic at the end of January, Martin Frýdl of the foundation Generace 21, which is financing most of the relocation project, told the Czech News Agency on Thursday. Upon their arrival, the refugees will undergo asylum procedures in the detention centre in Zastávka u Brna. They will spend another six or more months in Jihlava, where they will attend Czech language courses. A total of 153 people who have fled Islamic State aggression and are currently living in refugee camps in Kurdistan and Lebanon, are due to arrive in the country in 2016.
