Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

People who flee their country either due to persecution either individually or mass exodus due to political, religious or any other problem are referred to as refugees the 1951 United Nations convention  Relating to the status of refugees a refugee is defined as a person who “owing to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality, and is unable to or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country or return there because there is a fear of persecution...” 

According to those two definitions i can refer to people who escape their country due to crimes as refugees

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
