A call for help from the inmates of the 127bis detention center 06/07/2014: update

Upodate 11/07
De uitzetting van A in 127 bis en van De man in Voottem werden cancelled

Update – Hunger strike at the 127bis, July 8th
Yesterday, A. fell in his room. He was placed in solitary confinement after his fall. His codetainees went to see their “boss” and then the director, and they insisted that A. be brought to the hospital. He was taken to the hospital and brought back to the centre afterwards. When back, he was told that they would deport him to Pakistan “tomorrow or after tomorrow” without precising the exact date or time.

Appeal from detainees in the 127bis
Mr A A is Pakistani. He has been living in Belgium for 8 years. He is detained at 127bis. He has been on hunger strike (and thirst, according to some
reports) for more than 8days. His fellow inmates are worried. He is getting skinnier and is having a hard time expressing himself.
The other inmates went to see the director of the center. The director is minimizing A’s actions. “We’ll see on monday” is what he said.
The fellow inmates are calling for help. They don’t want their friend to die in his cell and they are very scared.
